    His shadow looks like a ballerina or a whirling dervish. How wonderful :)

  • Thanks. There, now see what you’ve done. Now I will never look at it in the same way…

    Cool shadow.

  • Thanks a lot. Bright sunshine is almost the default weather setting and that, naturally, leads to pictures where shadows feature prominently. The light was very bright even now with winter coming.

    Gorgeous capture! Fantastic shadow!

  • Thanks Berns. When I started the idea was to get the shadow on its own, but this worked out better, I think.
