Shadow Shot Sunday

One of many sets of stone stairs on trails in Yosemite built by the CCC during the depression.
More shadows for Shadow Shot Sunday can be found at Hey Harriet, hosted for us by Tracy in Brisbane.

These rocks seem like a natural staircase up the mount. Nature is the best stylist there is!

What a terrific shadow shot, Martha! It does look like a staircase and nature is definitely the best artist/designer of all! Love your new header shot! Have a great weekend!

Interesting shadow, reminds me of a totem pole.

Barb said...

That first shadow looks like a person in profile.

Lovely textures in the stones :)

I, too, thought the shadow looked like the profiel of a person. Great catch with or without the shadow!

Catherine said...

To me it has the elements of Easter Island - great shot!

It makes me want to go exploring! Shadows make an almost 3-D effect.

These rocks shadows are fascinating! Instantly I thought that the shadow in the middle look like some ancient idol! Wonderful photo!

You mirror my image, always doing for myself, whether gardening, splitting wood, camping in the high country(not a trailer)hard work doesn't scare me...never been to Yosemite or Yellowstone for that matter, it's all the people that keep me away, it just ain't natural, know what I mean!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Dianne said...

your perspective makes them look like huge peaks
