Dune shadow…. weekly photo challenge “Shadowed”


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Shadowed.”

Dune shadow

Dune shadow

Half light portraits with shadow on the face are  usually so much more artistic than those fully lit. But what about applying this to landscape shots? I am often drawn to the shadows. No, not to hide, but for the patterns they make.  This sand dune is much more interesting with the photo taken late in the day ,with the saw tooth shadow up the beach, than it would be if taken with full light on the dune front.

My Tasmanian summer garden


I have been out all weekend but it was lovely to get out into the garden with the camera after dinner….. that is until the mosquitos started feasting on me!!. The summer heat has set in and the ground is dry so I wanted to take a stroll and  capture some of the beauty before the garden succumbs to the full impact of summer. …….Although after the summer blooms there will be the seed heads… a variety of shapes that always fascinate me
