Shadow Shot Sunday

Dantes View 12
Early morning at Dante's View, a mile (and then some) above Death Valley.

Want to play along? Here are the rules. And here is this week's shadow shot from Harriet, plus a selection of last week's from others.

that is a SPOOKY shadow... looks like a great big head with hollow eyes... fitting, for Death Valley! :)

Thanks, y'all! It's really an amazing place...hard to take a photo there that isn't spectacular.

The shadow of death
creeps across torrid valley,
looking for victims.

Dante's View is on the crest of a ridge; the sun is behind me in this shot, low-angled, so it picks up anything that sticks up above the shadow line (in this case, sagebrush).

Speaking of Ansel Adams... That is stunningly good.

Beautiful shadow shot. And that sunlit sage in the foreground just MAKES it. Wow.
