Tree shadow shots

Since I'm obsessed with trees, it's no wonder that most of my shadow shots have trees in them.
This one is from a lovely cherry tree near the tennis courts. I cropped it so that the shadow was the subject.

It was the orange on these trunks that caught my eye but I think the shadows really add to to image.

These last two are of shadows on the dead oak trees in Uplands Park. I just love the twisted shapes these branches take on, and they're even more dramatic after the tree dies and the bark comes off to show the silvery wood beneath.

Here's a link to Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday blog.
