Shadow Patterns

Did an image ever stop you as you walked past it as if it had reached out and grabbed your arm? This one certainly did for me as I walked past it in my kitchen, and it was quite the auspicious moment. The sun shone through the leaves on the birch tree outside, but they were moving in a light breeze, one moment the apples were in total darkness, the next they were alight with direct and reflected sunlight. The sun shining into, on and through the basket remained constant, and something about the basket’s shadow makes it look as if the whole thing is floating on the surface of water.

    simply amazing, the whole ensemble, shadow and light playing a part and creating such an arresting photo, no wonder you stopped in your tracks. xx

      I know, it was so visually outstanding I stood the chance of taking a few dozen photos that all looked basically the same.
