Shadow Shot Sunday # 8


Homeland security

erect sentinels guard truths
as misty mauve meets azure water
life's fragile web

be not deceived.

While living in Florida, I visited the sanctuaries often, always looking for gators or any other fauna of the region and the illusive shot to add to my collection of pictures for a time when I knew I wouldn't be living there...memories, I can still smell the air on the beach.

Check out 'Hey, Harriets' blog for Shadow Shot Sunday...really cool shots.

Hey that's nice. It took me a little while to figure out what it was! They're the fun kind of photos...when you have to look at them for a while before realising what the image is.

...or perhaps I'm just a little slow ;)

This really is an amazing shot! I visited once, went away and thought about it! Now I'm back! I'm not game enough to say what I think it is. I'll just say it looks like two tiniest turtles on a pole in the water. Hmmmmmmm It even sounds crazy, but, as you probably know by now I have a great imagination! Now destroy my romantic vision and tell me it is some come of burglar alarm!

Utterly fascinating!

Very tranquil. Nice start to my morning.

Loved the black eyed susans and bird house from the earlier post.

Great shadow shot! I can't get close enough to turtles to get a picture. Plop, they're gone!

What a beautiful spot - it must have been incredibly calm and peaceful to form such a perfect reflection.
