Lens-Artist Challenge Shadows

It’s Tina’s turn this week to set the challenge, I love her palms against the warm stone, check it out. I found this quite hard because I realised that I kept finding photos shade rather than shadows.

I got there eventually though. Here’s what I found.

Frost in Exeter

Now I know that many of you experience months of frost and snow every winter, but recently it’s only occurred three or four times a year here. So I rarely get a chance to take icy photos. This morning my car told me it was -1 degrees, and the ground over in the fields was frozen. It was a brilliant blue sky day though and the frost in the hedgerows was slowly melting.

 
Apparently it will rain for the next seven days now, so I’m glad I caught the pretty cold stuff while I could. Rain means a temperature rise of eight to ten degrees, thanks goodness because the heat wasn’t working in my office on Friday, not much fun sitting still in 14 degrees!

Going Up

The Kuala Lumper tower stands 420mmeters high. At one time it was 7th highest building in the world, but now it’s been eclipsed by so many it isn’t even in the top twenty.

The view from the top was pretty amazing. I can’t help wondering where this desire to create bigger and taller will end, and I feel for the builders. I like heights, do you? Is there a point beyond which you wouldn’t want to go?
