On the Fence--Shadow Shot Sunday

When I saw this beautiful sight at an elementary school playground on the way to work Thursday, I screeched into the parking lot--don't worry, I made sure there were no kids or other cars in my path--and pulled out my cell phone. I was wishing I had my Canon in the car, but the shot looks pretty good with just the iPhone camera.

The timing and lighting were perfect. The early morning was brilliant and sunshiny, a relative rarity for November in the Midwest.

Make it a great day!

  2. What a lovely shot! :) It is perfectly shiny and vibrant - glad you were able to capture it. :)

    Thank you for stopping by my page. Take care and enjoy your weekend.


  3. 'Tis indeed an amazing shot with a camera phone!


    I have a little shadow that always follows me;
    My shadow is my best friend, as anyone can see.

    No matter where my feet go, my shadow’s always there—
    Except, of course, at midnight with darkness everywhere!

  4. Great shadow shot, it's amazing what you can do with your phone these days.Colours are amazing.

  5. Regardless how you mad this photo, it turned out very nice.

  6. The autumn colors are beautiful! I don't blame you for screeching into the parking lot.

    Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  7. We are used to seeing the autumnal foliage on the ground, horizontal and unnoticed. The vertical motif on the chain link is different - and quite stylish! The yellow-orange leaves are neatly translucent, yet with shadows too. A fine blend of seasonal art!

  8. I makes me think that fall is being held prisoner. Nice shot.

  9. Oh that's magical! Well spotted and worth screeching into the parking lot for that lovely shot! Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

  10. Such a very beautiful, dramatic, and colorful photo!! Perfect.

  17. I tell you, the iPhones really can take some great shots. My son has the new 4S and it is way better than the 4. My husband uses his all the time and I use it when I don’t have my point and shoot Canon or my Rebel. This shot is so pretty. Love the contrast of the leaves and their beautiful colors against the fencing. Nice shot. genie
