Shadow Shot Sky

It is a full on RAIN weekend and the surprise of the weather forecast actually following through is shocking !!
Do I mind the rain ? hell no ;-) it means that the snow will be shrinking considerably and that makes me a happy gardener by all means !
But shadow shots are slim pickings here so I aimed my camera sky wards and too a bit of an unusual look at it .. an almost black and white theme here but I think you get the light and dark of it all : )
Now head on over to Tracy's place Hey Harriet and have a gander at those terrific shots the shadow shooters have caught !


Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes! I can SO relate! Holding good thoughts for some sun for you this week!!!


Christine said...

Very clever way to get a shadow shot, Joy. :) I have done the same at times. Hope the sun shines for you soon!

millie said...

your post brightened my day! i could use a little of your rain to wash the snow out of my yard too.

Ms. Becky said...

I really love your header shot. so cool. and the sky you've given up for shadow shot? really rather remarkable because it shows your hope and I love that. really truly beautiful. happy SSS and have a wonderful coming week!

Ralph said...

This is a great shot! If we use our imaginations, this cloudy sky shot can be turned upside down to evoke the snow on the ground. The illusion is a fun result of your picture. The snow near long Island Sound is receding nicely - Spring awaits!

Hi Joy, :) we both posted about the sky! Those are some heavy looking clouds.

Shadows weaving in and out the clouds--lovely!


A shadow for one?
What fun, what fun!

A shadow for two—
In black or blue?

A shadow for three?
O my, O me!

A shadow for four?
Ah, mi amour!

A shadow for five?
Coming alive!

A shadow for six?
Light playing tricks!

A lovely shadow-shot sky. What a good idea!
I wish it were warm enough to rain here, but no such luck, so the snow remains, and more comes down.

Hey Harriet said...

Some eerie looking clouds there! I'm not a big fan of rain but at least my garden appreicates it. If I had snow to contend with I'd probably be more fond of the rain like yourself!

Re the box jellyfish warning...yeah we have lots of nasty critters over here. A big brown snake just slithered in front me as I was walking to the shop before. These creatures keep us on our toes. Never a dull moment :)

I have to swing over to your place girl : )

Hootin' Anni said...

PS....I loved your comment you left for me...[and commented below yours] about your take on humanity this morning!!! And, I'm in total agreement.

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

That pouring rain turned to snow overnight and left everything white again. Well, thinking positivie, at least a lot of the snow got washed away with the rain so today's snow cover isn't as deep.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Anni girl I was in such a MOOD this morning you got the full swing of it over there and more ? LOL .. glad you agree girl : )

Linda this seems like such a long cold dragged out end of winter I think we are all going to go NUTS when some good weather does hit?
