Shadow Shot Sunday - Safe Harbor

A breakwater and pier on the harbor in West Haven Connecticut 

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back for the week. Today is a view of two souls that explore the breakwater jetty on New Haven Harbor. The scene is as detailed as the value priced point-and-shoot can allow. However, the subtle and shadowy reflections of the pair are defined well from afar on this early morning time by the West Haven beach. Quiet in style with nary a wave and the morning mist lifting away from the surface - it is relaxing in both look and feel...see a world of shadowy style at SSS2!

Ah, this is a lovely and thought-provoking shot. It leaves one imagining all sorts of scenarios for this couple and their shadowy reflection.

I love the soft focus, especially paired with your evocative words. This is a really beautiful, engaging post.

By the way, in case you didn't catch my reply on the hangar-wedding post re the planes,you were right. The plane on the left was indeed a Merlin, and the one on the right was a Cessna Citation Vll. The two biplanes were twin Stearmans. A T-6 Texan was the backdrop for most of the wedding party photos. You'd have been right at home. ;-)

Our world is so noisy that we need to stop and listen to the nature.
In our backyard birds are singing like crazy!
Happy Sunday!
