  1. Wonderful images, and I love the shadows! You are right. Sometimes the shadow is what makes the image. Apparently I need to visit Langakwi and Lithuania.

    • I have not taken shadows seriously; I will look for photos with intersting shadows. Right, Langkawi and Latvia are two places which I like very much. Thank for the comment!

  2. i really liked how you perceive the idea of shadows! and whats with all your palm tree photos? they just look postcard perfect! ^_^

  3. Using shadow would make a great theme. I must say I thought the fountain and tree photograph called out to me. I would love to exist in that space in that photograph. All your photographs, however, were exquisite, I just have a real relationship with trees and water. I noticed you are draw to them yourself. Very enjoyable presentation. thank you, jk

    • Hi the secret keeper, I love water and nature. I like that space too and have been staying under the shadow of the tree to have a bit of rest. Thank you for the kind comment!

  4. Love them all but the dining by the beach is my favorite. Wouldn’t it be great if everyday we have breakfast overlooking such a breathtaking , peaceful view? Have a great weekend.

  5. I’ve always been enamored by the shadows cast by trees. I guess you know which pictures I loved most🙂. Using a polarizer allows one to take good pics even on very bright days. I often prefer to photograph flowers on a slightly overcast day as the colors wash out otherwise.

    • I know I should be using a polarizer; I still hasn’t got one. Quite true, pictures turn out very harsh on a bright hot day with an overhead sun. Thank you🙂

  6. I found myself scrolling back and forth between the shot of Lake Bareen (Australia) and the one at the park by Lake Geneva, comparing the similarities of shapes and proportions in each composition, and contrasting the color palettes of the manicured park against the natural lake setting.

  7. What wonderful shadow pictures, Michael. You always give me something interesting to think about. In my next post I am going to link to this post and I am going to post one of my own shadow pictures. Wasn’t sure about it but you have made me look at it again in a new light, and actually it’s rather wonderful too.

    How much of the year do you spend travelling? Are you ever home?

    Warm regards

  8. I particularly liked the Lake Barrine shot of the water plants but I enjoyed all of today’s pictures… imagining myself there somehow – V

  9. You have some good shadows, indeed – the palm on the white sand is most effective – but in most cases shadows are, and should be, incidental to the main theme. I think to go out chasing shadows would probably be a mistake!🙂

    • The water in the Adriatic is deep blue. Some people say it is because of the dissolved minerals, other people say it is related to the currents in the area. The blue color is really enchanting!

  11. Shadows certainly add a different dynamic to scenic shots. Reflections in the water are add yet another interesting and fluid dimension. These are great photos. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    • Hi Shelly, both water and shadows are my favourite subjects of photography for the reasons you mentioned. Glad you like the Shadows photo. Thank you for the kind comment!
