Shadow Shot Sunday - Sandy shadows max and min

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 arrives for us on a gray day with cold rain. Thus, I showcase summer shadows. Such as in days of yore on Cape Cod. First is the max shadow view taken by our kids on a Duck vehicle. Beyond the stylish houses, shadows fall while wavy reflections bob on the briny waves. This is an attractive and very nice neighborhood...
Now, on the spacious and barely occupied Kalmus Beach, there are shadows to be found.

We have to look hard to see them. And they appear under the slender beach. Under a few blades of grass, feathery shadows fall about the soft Atlantic sand. These shadows are tiny, so no protection for the humans who forgot to apply sunblock...See more shadowy art at SSS2...

I do see the tiny shadows and I'd certainly be wearing my sunscreen!

I've never been on a duck. My husband use to ride them in Hot Springs, AR all the time when he was a kid.

I love your summery shadow shots, Ralph, on this gray, chill, rainy day in Seattle! As you saw, I was digging in the files today, too, for my shadows! Have a good weekend, stay warm!

Sometimes small is big.
Happy Sunday!

Oh! The water and the beach are so inviting! And deceptive to this time of the year (I know it doesn't look like that now). You've provided some warm and sunny dreams for us!

Your photos make me dream of sitting in the sun, enjoying the warmth!

I like delicate shadows
Cape Cod is a wonderful place to go

it's very very windy here today, 60 mph gusts
our shutters are shuttering

The Hunt and the subtlety made this absolutely delicious!

lovely little vignettes of shadows scattered about the beach.

The Cape Cod scene is enchanting! That looks like a small lighthouse near the central home? Or is it just an added fantasy to the home? Love the beach scene...my favourite world where beach grasses etch their own fine shadow not big enough to share with humans!

Awwww, the beach. :)
Each time I visit my daughter in Boston we head to a beach for the day. The west and east coasts beaches are so different. One is... when we are driving up to the beach here and getting close, the smell of seaweed it strong! LOL Not so on the east.

I miss this scenery! Delightful images Ralph, it warms me a little now that were covered with snow here. Thanks for contributing art to shadow shots!

Shadows surround us no matter where we are.

I like the barely discernible shadows in the beach sand!

Mmmmmmmmm, Ralph, these images leave me breathless. Such beauty!! [and I like your winter-blue and pink sunset photos below this post also]

Beautiful sunny pictures. I hope you didn't get burnt too badly!

Dear Ralph you have made me remember my days at the beach as a little girl .. and loving every grain of sand of it !
Thank you !
Joy : )

Reflections and those lil shadows scattered on the white sand, makes me fly somewhere warm and sunny.

Hope our Spring come soon. It's sunny here but still below zero, so, it's not really fascinating weather.

Hope you are in the best of the best and enjoy your Sunday with lovely P.

Hugs to you both,
/Chie

Summer pictures chase away the dreary day ~ lucky for us, summer is around the block or two!
We took our kids on a duck boat several years ago in Boston ~ lots of fun, and the boys, who love EVERYTHING to do with military life, were in heaven!
Have a great week ahead....perhaps with lots of sunshine!

What wonderful captures of serene moments, shimmery reflections and day dreams.
