Shadows really add drama to travel photos, but of course you can’t have shadows unless it’s sunny!
Cows and horses graze the land around Covadonga Lake in Northern Spain. I could do a whole post just on shadows in Spain – this is a very sunny place.
I couldn’t resist another Spanish shot, this one of the shadow of Castillo de Curiel that looms over the local landscape. An ominous shadow cast by an old-fashioned baby carriage (Columbia, California).
Rice wine in the shadows on Inle Lake, Myanmar.
In Holland there are bikes everywhere, with cool shadows – and I guess you don’t actually need sun after all! Another example of strong lighting rather than sun with these artsy chairs casting artsy shadows in the Brussels Museum in Belgium. Shadow of elephant riders in Laos. A chandelier made of coffee cups shines a spiral shadow on the wall of a Vancouver cafe, Canada.Shadows under the archway of a California winery. The shadow of the outside tower falls over the window inside the Dieppe Cathedral in France. More from the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadow.
Love your collection for this week’s challenge. Each has its own beauty.
Loved your approach of using shadows to augment travel shots. Lovely choices
Thanks so much – I love capturing ‘side details’ (like shadows) more than trying to get a great shot of the scene.
Great collection of shots!
