Have you ever experienced the magic of the winter shadows in a deciduous woods? I have always been fascinated by the play of light and shadow as I ride a dirt road, feeling the warming sun filter through the blinks of darkened shadow. This is natures way of warming the earth in the dead of cold, then bringing forth bright green leaves as an introductory play with light, as we wait for the thick green canopy that cools us when the summer temperature rises.
My response to Cheri’s Weekly Photo Challenge of Shadow. It was fun thinking about the difference in light between Michigan and Florida, between summer and winter, and thus how shadows show themselves.

Oh…once again you’ve brought to the forefront of my thoughts those memories of my youth…walking along an Ohio country road in winter…thanks for the smiles. 🙂
You are so welcome – sharing smiles makes more to go around.
Lovely – I can feel myself right in the photo.
Thanks – how fun it is to share.
