Shelley and I were in the park when she noticed our long shadows. "Can you make a picture of us?", she asked. I tucked the camera into my waist and snapped this moment.

Witsand heart

by Koos Fourie
(South Africa)

It was an early morning in the dunes at the Witsand Nature Reserve in South Africa. I was waiting for the sun to rise and took this shot when sun just came out shining only on a part of the dunes. I liked the texture of the sand and used the "heart" as the focus point.

Clearing the head.

by Leah Horrigan.
(Gravesend Kent, UK)

It had been a long night and I had a lot going around in my head, so was tired and couldn't think straight to say the least....my idea was to go to sleep for a couple of hours but thought I would go for a walk first, a beautiful sunny but fresh morning certainly did the trick, I just loved the way the shadows were cast across the pavement on this shot!

by Hannah Lavoie

I love macro photography, and I found an interesting way to use it when I noticed these ribbons were reflecting colored shadows!

I had placed a bowl of water on the window at noon.
All the water creates a shadow and only the center is filled with light.

Williams Coffee Pub

by Harry Cartner
(London, Ontario, Canada)

This is a shadow of the engraving on frosted glass surrounding the patio at Williams Coffee Pub in London, Ontario. It was taken on the patio on March 11, 2012. Who would have thought we could sit on a patio drinking coffee in the middle of March.

Colours in the Shadows

by Wendy Reeve
(Motueka, NZ)

I just love the way the colours are shown in the shadows of these glasses. I suppose I had been thinking of shadows as being black or gray and seeing this made me stop and look again. I wish I had 3 glasses to make a better composed picture - or would it then have been too cluttered?

Roof Tiger

by Lorna
(Saskatchewan, Canada)

While we enjoy spending warm evenings in our Mexican casita, we are often entertained by the "shadow dance of the roof tiger" that the lamp light creates as it's gently nudged by a subtle breeze. The rounded shape of the clay roof tiles and the strong lines of the steel support beam add to the uniqueness of the design.

Angel in the sun

Angel in the sun

Angel in the sun

Looking for something to make an interesting shadow I came across this Christmas ornament of a raffia angel about 10cm tall.
I sat it on white paper in the front doorway where the morning sun was streaming in. There was great debate whether the shadow should be top or bottom but I opted for it being the dominant feature.

We tried all sorts of other items such as stools, magazine racks, steamer pots with holes in, flower arrangements but the angel was the best.

Tuscan Silhouette

by Theresa
(Toronto, Ontario)

These shadows, created by olive tree branches silhouetted on an open tent, bring back lovely memories of visiting an orchard in Tuscany where olive oil is produced. What a treat for my senses on a beautiful autumn day!

Death Valley Dunes

by Larry Monczka
(Port Ryerse, Ontario, Canada)

We've just returned from a photo shoot in Death Valley California. The classic "near-far" presentation is all about shadows. Sand patterns are outlined by the low angle of the late afternoon sun and lead the eye into the picture space.
