Glacial erratics at Olmsted Point, Yosemite National Park.

Go ahead--give in to the urge to Shadow Shot Sunday. All the cool kids are doing it.

Love all the cracks & crevices are wonderful - reminds us a microscopic shot of the epidermis...of course with small pebbles on it!

Crafty Green Poet said...

very cool shot - I love all the small shadows hidden away in there...

Sweet Repose said...

Sun drenched ancient paths...I think I'll bask in it for awhile, it's good to see the sun somewhere!


Beautiful shot!

Pacey said...

This is a creative post Tom. Like the composition here.

Really beautiful shadow shot!

Marvelous shot as always, Tom! I love all the cracks and crevices each with their own little shadows!

Enjoy the day!

"Which way should we go? I'm thinking up this way."

"No, no, I think we should head down here!"

"I don't know... I think this way is the better path."

"Suit yourself. I'm going this direction."

Catherine said...

you wouldn't think those squat round rocks would produce such long pointy shadows...great shot..

Ralph said...

In the natural scheme, when compared to the rocky hills, the stones in question are small and seemingly insignificant. Yet the small rocks leave a much larger and significant shadow. In the right context, small can be more powerful...

Great SS of the "age lines" and rocks of our world. Makes me want to be there where it's DRY!

indiajourney said...

loved the texture of the rocks...very nice shot.

ahab said...

Now those are some substantial shadows.

Martha Z said...

A great shot. Lots of great shots to be had there.

Carolyn Ford said...

Shadows hide in so many places! Beautiful Yosemite!

Rosebud Collection said...

Beautiful shot. The rocks look so interesting.
Happy SSS.

Hot Fudge said...

You must have been up at the crack of dawn to get such long shadows - or was it late in the afternoon? Either way, well done - it's a great shot.

Greyscale Territory said...

The shadows cast by the stones seem like an ancient gateway to somewhere! This is enhanced by the rugged ground! Beautiful atmosphere!

ahab said...

You know, there's a definite consonance again here between your shot and Generik's. It's almost like he's stalking you!

Hey Harriet said...

Beautiful! The textures and patterns and of course the shadows are all so lovely! You visit some amazing places!

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

Do those two stones stand up forever like that, I wonder! Lovely shadows.

Generik said...

It's almost like he's stalking you!

Well, we did get together last night with some other Flickr friends for a few beers...

Rita said...

Wow!! As my grandson would say... "awesome dude."

I will have to start watching the ground a little closer from now on.

Patti said...

I love the patterns made by the natural lines and cracks in the rock. They create perfect shadows here.

Nice photo!

And I love the name of your blog. ;-)

Tom Hilton said...

Thanks, y'all! To be honest, it's hard to take a bad picture in Yosemite.
