Shadow Shot Sunday and Straight Out of the Camera


This is probably one of the most pleasant surprises to come "straight out the camera" this summer! The red of a setting sun over the Bay of Fundi, Nova Scotia, cast its light on the beach rocks and trees, except where the long shadow in the middle lies - that is the rock we were sitting on and the figure at the tip is me.

  1. The reddening light on the trees is so very beautiful! Trees on fire without the flame! A stunning photo!

  3. I really like this view! The rocks really take on the red that the sun dishes out. The gray of the shadow (of the artist) actually complements the pink on the rocks. What a capture for SSS! Someday I would love to see New Scotland...

  9. It makes so happy that you all enjoyed this shot as much as I! Therein lies the joy of sharing photos through blogging!

    The sunsets were so beautiful in Nova Scotia but it's a good reminder to turn around to see what else the light is touching.

    Thank you again and peace.

  11. I thought that the reddish color is the sand color, it's from the sun!! Very beautiful!

  12. What a terrific shot! At first glance I thought the rocks were those different colors - then it popped into perspective as the light and shadow that it is. I couldn't see it immeidiately that way because it's so rare to get light that red down here in the South.
