One thing I learned a long time ago about shadows is that you get the strongest ones when you have a bright directional light source, something like the sun, on a cloudless day.

Doing the happy dance here because, finally, we have just that here today; bright sun, cloudless sky, cold as heck but that's a small price to pay for a break from relentless flat grey. So here to celebrate are a few pictures of shadows.





And finally one of the bright blue sky itself, and tree branches with those littl nodules that will in the hopefully not too, too distant future, be turning into leaves.

Deliberately searching out shadows is a cool thing. Trying to photograph someone in that strong direct light leaves less than appealing shadows.

So true Nicki but after all the grey days I just wanted to revel in the bright cheerfulness of a sunny day.Portraits can wait or go indoors. LOL

So glad you got a break from the flat grey - it is rarely an enjoyable condition, especially when it has been going on for weeks on end. Love that first one, with the "flower" on the fence.

I do like this idea of looking at shadows! I definitely will be noticing them more!
