Shadows


I shot this while hiking through Peace Valley Park the day after we received ~12" (30cm) of snow.  I love the way the sun was shining through the trees.  It was late in the afternoon as the sun was setting.

This was submitted to Reflection #14 for the sun reflecting off the snow.

Great mood. I can almost feel the cold in the weak light of the setting winter sun.

Merry Christmas.

Clear and sharp. The sunburst is captured well as is the silhouette of the vegetation. The thin line of reflection is a joy to contemplate.

I also appreciate the camera information.

Merry Christmas. Happy 2010.

Lovely! And I do so enjoy sitting here in Hawaii and looking at every one else's photos of snow. I spent the day at the beach!
