Wet Shadow

I hiked with friends up towards Duck Pass in the Mammoth Lakes area.  As usual I was on the lookout for shadows.  I found this one at Skelton Lake.
Where is this?  The link will bring up a map.

There are more shadows to be found at the Shadow Shot Sunday meme, hosted for us by Tracey in Brisbane.

Terrific shadow shot for the day, Martha! Isn't it fun when we find them like this? Hope you're having a great weekend!

Looks dramatic! Very crispy due to the sunny day.

You still have hot days? Well, California? §;-)

Happy SS,

I love the crooked shape of the shadow. And I would like to walk in the water, looks so calm.

Very nice clear shadow. Now I'm off to check the map via the link you shared. :)

A wonderful picture indeed. Should be framed and placed on a wall.

Please have a good Sunday you all.

And what a super shadow this time! I also love the ripples of the water. . .

I haven't resolved my camera problem yet but I have started a new blog here:

Beautiful! Interesting that the shadow looks curvier than the branch.

Ralph said...

The log looks quite what it is, a log shaped by the water. However, the shadow has an almost human form, and quite curvaceous. A lovely shadow, indeed!

Gaelyn said...

Nice sighting and good composition. Almost snake like.

Kerri said...

Agree so much with Diane AZ, the shadow looks completely different from the log - from the camera's perspective. Great photo!

Interesting shadow. I like how the branch and its shadow have a little bit different shape.

Laura said...

Great image Martha...I love the shape of the light formed between the wood and the shadow of it, very, very cool!

That's just perfect -- really shows what the area is like and the photo is just exactly right in every detail.
