A Crooked Way To Go Up











I liked how the angle of the late afternoon sun really distorted the shadow of these stair railings! What's at the top? Why a breath-taking vista 360 and a place to sit while soaking it all in-which is the first image (although you can't see the benches as I was trying to get the snow capped mountains of Santa Fe off in the distance in the shot).

I hope all of you who observe Thanksgiving Day had a great time spent with family and friends. It's a lot of work to prepare for the event (unless you go out to eat), but it makes the gathering all the more special with memories to last. There is so much to be grateful for-such as, not having to wash all the dishes down at the stream instead of in the comfort of a cozy kitchen. Counting what you have far out-measures what you don't-always keep that in your crosshairs!

Join us as a group of us (yes-there are many of us!) from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!

That is fantastically crooked and should win a shadow shot award!

The angled shadows look quite sharp and dramatic. Like some abstract art on the steps.

Those shadows are amazing. Perfect time of the day to take your pictures. The structure at the top is awesome. I bet it is much larger when you are sitting on the bench than how it appears on my screen.

Just don't follow the line if you are in a hurry to reach the top step - that crooked line will make one late every time!

Hi Paula,
The shadows are very nicely captured.
I also like your banner - wonder what the object is...
Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

I like the distortions that happen when light casts its shadow! I too am curious about your header photo.
