Shadows in the woods

As the days shorten down we walk the dogs in the woods at the time of long shadows.  This is really a lovely time of year (at least when the sun comes out, as it did for a few days this week). 

I like the shadows of the branches on this tree trunk.  And below is my shadow looking like I'm wearing a skirt of ferns.

I'm posting these for Shadow Shot Sunday.  You can visit to see shadows from everywhere.

Who knows how many more sunlit days we'll have this fall.  Right now we're enveloped in fog again and shadows are a thing of the past.


  1. Such gorgeous Fall shadows and terrific captures, Joanna! Love the colors! Hate to see the cold return, but there's not much more beautiful than autumn in the woods! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

  2. great shadows, love the one of you

  3. extremely cool shadows stretching into the scrub and trees joanna! i saw my shadow on snow here today. steven

  4. Good that you're taking time from your busy schedule for a relaxing walk in the woods.

  5. It's really nice to go for a walk in the woods, lots of things to see.

    I am now a follower of your blog.

  6. Very cool pictures. Nice to take advantage of the sun whilst it is around!

  7. The first photo is wonderful. Interesting optical illusion.

    cheers, parsnip

  8. Great shadow shots of Autumn in your part of the world. Love the shadow of you and the ferns.

  9. Great shadows and great woods. Last one is my favourite.

  10. Your autumn photos are so pretty. LOVE the fern skirt! Your autumn appears to be much more dramatic than ours. Autumn over here is more like a milder version of our spring. We lack the vibrant gold/red colours you experience over there :)

    Being enveloped in fog does not sound the least bit pleasant! I hope that passes quickly for you!

    Have a great week :)

  11. beautiful sequence of autumn colours...

  12. Love the fern skirt! A beautiful walk on a lovely day.

    Sylvia, yes the colours make up for the coming cold--maybe!

    Kebeni, thanks for visiting. I like your blog.

    Hi Steven, snow already? Yikes!

    Barb, thanks. It's good to take some time off and enjoy nature.

    Anonymous, thanks for your comment. I left one on your blog too.

    Stephanie, yeah I kind of liked the fern skirt a lot too. Hope your weekend was a good one.

    Chubskulit, thanks for following. It's nice to meet you.

    Alone again, thanks for your comment. You're right, we have to take advantage of whatever sun we can.

    Hey Harriet, thanks for your comment...and for posting SSS.

    Catherine, the colours are so much softer than the Mexico ones. But all are lovely.

    Angry Parsnip, yes it was that optical illusion that drew my notice.

    Hi nana-- Thanks for visiting. I love your Clydesdale photos.
