Winter Sun



The winter sun casts extra long shadows on the sand along our shoreline on one of the shortest days of the year.

Be sure to click on Hey Harriet for other pictures for Shadow Shot Sunday from all around the world.

If you used your imagination, you could almost visualize this as snow...but why would you want to do that...you could live in Iowa if you wanted to look at snow...YUCK!!!

I'll be dreamin' of the Pacific sands...thanks! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas...now we can look to renewal in the New Year...PEACE would be nice...

One of the coolest things about SSS is that folks are from everywhere. Being so far inland, it is GREAT to see glimpses of the ocean world!
Ahhhhh....

Hi! I remember the sand, it gets into everything! But I would like to see some, with sun on it, now...;-)

So pretty! It gets dark so early this time of year, these shadows make me think it could be like 1:30 in the afternoon.

Great, long shadows! We had some of those on the beach near the harbor yesterday! Hope you had a great Christmas and wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year! Enjoy!

The Atlantic lets such cold breezes filter in from the Northeast. So it feels cold. Yet the sun leaves a warm look on the sand, and without snow, it looks almost as if we are in the warm season. The shadow of the post looks like it was on a sundial, we are drawn to ths sun and sue=rf...

Your shadow shot of the Pacific beach is breathtaking. I am a big fan of the beach myself.
We visited California a few years ago and traveled along the Pacific Coast Hwy. It was spectacular compared to our Atlantic coastline.

Beautiful shadow shot. It interests me to try to take pictures like that next winter. Hope you have a good week.

thanks for the visit

Lovely wintery light! A very pretty show shot!

Cool shot! I can visualize the place during sunset; it's probably gonna give you more shadows and intensity! Wish I could see more of the beach, it looks beautiful!

Have a nice day at the Pacific Rim!

Much Love,

At first I thought it was snow (it's snowing here), but then I saw it was sand, which cheered me up!

What a beautiful place for a walk.

I need that sand to walk hand in hand with my dearie GH.

But, not on snow, though... need the warmth of the sand from sun.

Lovely...
