Shadow Shot Sunday

Brides Bonnet 04
Bride's Bonnet (Clintonia uniflora) at Rainy Lake, Marble Mountain Wilderness.

Once again, it's Shadow Shot Sunday; come join in the fun.

A great shot. The leaves look like my moth orchid and the blossom is like a lily. I've never visited the Marble Mountain Wilderness.

Very nice photo.
Shadow of the flower is great bonus to your composition.

Exquisite flower and a gorgeous shadow shot for the day! Hope you have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend, Tom! Enjoy!


Ralph said...

The green leaves are gigantic when compared to the smaller flower. Yet the little one seems outsized for what is lacks in size is more than offset by the shadow in the same cheerful way as the subject. Neat!

Cassie said...

At first I thought this was a lily, but then realized it is much more dainty. Very nice SS. Have a good weekend.

I'm guessing that these lovely flowers grow only in deep woods.


I love my shadow,
My shadow loves me;
We chat together
And don’t disagree!

My shadow and I
Prefer not to shout
As we go walking
And rambling about.

My shadow’s so wise,
I ask what she thinks;
She’s happy to share,
And then nods and winks.

My shadow and I
Are best buds, you see;
That’s why we try hard
To always agree!

That is a great capture, a shadow of oneself on oneself.

I don't see the forest, but I can feel it there in the photo. Nice shot.

Tom Hilton said...

Thanks, everybody!

Yes, this is in deep forest--a wetter, thicker (more undergrowth) forest than I'm used to in the Sierra. These are in the lily family (Liliaceae), hence the resemblance.
