You found some stripes, too, and a lot of other interesting shapes as well.

Lance said...

I love that last one!! The little critter is almost hidden by the shadows!

Stephanie said...

Hi Dianne! In my mind I was thinking what shadow was that for the first pix and so on. The shadows of the flowers are as pretty as the actual flowers. But they all look interesting when cast on the earth/ground like that. Have a great Sunday!

Clytie said...

Fabulous pictures. My daughter came up as I was looking at them - and she fell in love with them as well.

These shadow shots are truly amazing and the haiku blends perfectly.

Lindy MacDuff said...

Wonderful shadow shots! I am always amazed at vegetation that grows among the rocks and cliffs.

TechnoBabe said...

I love the critter's head in the shadows. How did you happen to get that shot? Very good. We have squirrels here and they move too fast for my digital camera.

Pictures with shadows have always been my favorites! So I am feeling spoiled today..
