Sun and Shadows


MLK day was beautiful! It was warm enough to flavor the air with a hint of "spring" and the ground was all squishy. I walked through muddy fields in the park, inhaling the earthy breeze and stepping on shadows. The sun was working it's magic, painting stretchy dark extensions of the trees across the grass. I couldn't help but admire and photograph them, looking down at the trees, rather than up. Enjoy!

Love these shots. And what a nice contrast to the sparkly red berries of the previous post.

Excellent group of tree shadows. Love it!

Very cool, well done! I'm tempted to ask how much you would charge for a print!

Karen said...

MC - I'm so thrilled that you would ask! Many many thanks. Actually (how timely!) I'm working on an Etsy site that should go live soon! I plan to have lots of tree photos for sale, as well as some other goodies. Your request has inspired me to pick up the pace!

Thanks, everybody. With the exception of the last one (shot at PS 282), they were all shot in Prospect Park in Brooklyn.

Beautiful photography! Very creative angles and I admire how you bring out each tree's presonality through their shadows.

Happy to have stumbled on your site. I am truly a tree lover, as well. I not only love live trees, but dead gnarly ones with character are great, too. I love your shadow work!
