Shadows: Mother Nature’s Charcoal Pencils

Published in: Daily Photo

Call me easily amused (“Hello, easily amused.”), but I get a big kick out of taking pictures of shadows.


Just ask El Hub. He’ll be in the other room and hear me exclaim, “OOH! Now that’s a good one…”

Then he’ll shout back, “What? What’s a good one?”

And I’ll say, “The shadows!”

Like this picture here of leaves on the curtains from a tree outside.


Look at those soft edges and the crisper ones down below…

Something like this would take a long time in Photoshop, but Mother Nature did it instantly.

    You’re not alone! I love the way the light casts shadows on curtains early on late summer mornings – the light is all pale gold and the shadows are, as you so eloquently put it, like charcoal sketches 🙂

    We rogues know a lot about night-time shadows though. Conoisseurs, we are… 😉
