Strange Perspective on Shadows

This is my day 5 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

The shadows of the various trees are a bit strange in this photo. The shadows cast by the row of trees seem to be pointing in a different direction to the shadow cast by the solitary tree in the field. That’s because the field is in effect a miniature valley. The shadows of the row of trees are on one slope and the shadow of the solitary tree is on the other slope.

I have to say I much prefer the panoramic version but the square crop does show the way the shadows change direction more obviously.

Thanks Tish. Long shadows are associated with the beginning and end of the day so maybe the nostalgia is because you’re associating them with the end of the day.
