Shadow Shot Sunday - Speedy Seasonal Scenic



It's time again for Shadow Shot Sunday 2...the post is late as we had to leave early to attend the First Communion of a niece in East Windsor, about 50 miles (80 kM) north. So as to not to ignore the shadowy world, I drove the always lovely front seat passenger Patti was the designated photographer. 

Today, these shots were taken on the way up and are northbound on the Wilbur Cross Parkway, CT Route 15. It is old (1949) and today, sans the usual weekday commuter hordes (and upon new Firestone tires), a nice ride upstate. The left is us going uphill to the soon to arrive downhill which will then go uphill to the West Rock Tunnel. Spring colors and shadows work nicely together for a shadowy post. Hate to miss SSS2...

Isn't it wonderful being able to get out and about on the road surrounded by green? I am so glad winter is over though it has been very chilly this week. genie

Hope you had a great week-end with family.

God Bless your niece and hugs to both you & Patti.

Better late than never! I'm a bit late in making the rounds-really enjoyed your 'drive'! I don't think you've posted that drive before (or at least, I haven't seen it). Very scenic indeed.
