Shadow Shot Sunday - Monochrome Winter

Out the front door on the Ansonia Uplands.
From the bedroom of our son now residing in Brooklyn, NYC...
Shadow Shot Sunday occurs after our latest snowfall, and with the sunshine we can see shadowy art forming before our eyes. So with cheap droid phone in hand, the snowy canvas was observed and captured for SSS2. To compensate for the quality, a B&W edit corrects some flaws while allowing the shadows to stand out a bit more. In the bottom one, the screen in the window even adds a kind of texture to the scene. Yes, it is much colder than normal around here today...merely a small price to pay for well-defined shadows!

The shadows are certainly bold and defined. Monochrome highlights the contrast of snow and shadow beautifully.

Nothing like snow and sunshine to get great shadow shots! Hope you're staying warm in this cold snap.
