Obviously taken before last night's storms - fields are a quagmire now although it has been mild today.

trees provide some of the best shadows we can find - moving shadows are the best.

Gerals - no it was today.....

Moe - I agree, I love watchign tree shadows move...

Ralph said...

These trees are tall in their vertical state. The horizontal shadows are 'taller' than the trees it seems. As well, the shadows and manicured grounds are stunning, the light and dark settling on the green wonderfully!

Great fall shadow!
Thanks for commenting on my blog the other day. Thanks to that, I found Shadow Shot Sunday and joined in. :)

Nice and Easy Antiques said...

It looks like some architectonic shape...hard to believe it's a tree!

Sarah said...

It looks lovely and sunny up there!

Paula Scott said...

I love the fact that I get glimpses of other people's daily views. It's almost as though I was there.
Love this tree shadow! They seem like giants.

Michael said...

I like those long shadows. I guess the photographer's shadow is hiding in the tree shadow. Clever.

Carletta said...

Even in shadow you can see their arms reaching for the sky!
Nice shot!

Fantastic! Your tree shadow a little bit reminds me of the shadow of "Daddy- Long-Legs", my favourite story in childhood.

The photos in the previous post are so beautiful! What a lovely place!

Sweet Repose said...

Wish our parks would stay all lush and green, all to soon the snows will cover...

whizkid said...

Lovely Fall color behind this TALL tree shadow ... simply beautiful ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Trees have great shadows with different shapes. Like the green grass and the fallen leaves on it. Have a happy weekend.

Diane AZ said...

After losing all those leaves the tree is a mere, but lovely, shadow of its former self. Nice capture!

I love shadow shots of trees!

bobbie said...

Marvelous tree shadows.

MyMaracas said...

I really like the way the shadows are slim and simple up to the tangle at the top. Very different!

Square Peg Guy said...

Interesting shot because you managed to hide your own shadow!

Wow, you're crafting many posts this year, and you've been blogging for four years! That's inspiring!

Keep up the great work!

Pam said...

The shadows of the tree limbs look like arms holding up the rest of the green field.

Clorivak said...

Beautiful shot...trees always make the best shadows..especially in autumn. notice you like sons and daughters..great band!

Uncanny Festoon said...

I love the intertwined branches casting shadows

Joops said...

They look so tall with those elongated shadows!

I am a little bit late for my post but I am catching up. Hope you can still see My Shadow Shot Entry.

Love the trees and all of the green in the picture the shadows are dramatic. Beautiful! Thanks for your comment.

Patti said...

Wonderful shadows ~ almost look like people walking across the grass, somehow.

I shall reveal my mystery photo. Come by when you get a chance..

Lily Hydrangea said...

so pretty, I love tree shadows.

Dimple said...

Nice shadows. I like shade on a hot day, although I doubt it was hot when you took this!
Thanks for the visit!

Jazzbumpa said...

I never realized Scotland could look so much like Michigan.

Cheers!
