Days of the Long Shadow

     The sun here is low enough in the sky that long shadows are cast. It's also bright enough that we see fairly dark and sharp shadow.

      I went out this morning intending to get snow photo to show the recent snowfall but the shadows got in the way.

      Today was very bright so the snow shows up well and the shadow is emphasized. I might not get many more bright days for a while.

    1. Usually we have snow around the beginning of Nov. so we think we're lucky that it's come this late.

  6. You have a lot of snow already but with the sun it feels good to have a walk.

  8. Hi Red, Those are some cool pictures in more ways than one. It looks like somebody clears the sidewalks. Your pictures reminded me of a day I remember from a winter in Montana ... On a clear sunny day, with zero wind, and about 5 degrees F (let's see ... that would be about -15C) one could sit outside in a lawn chair and be perfectly comfortable.

    1. We have to clear our own sidewalks within 48 hours of the snow fall. You get used to what you get but I'm not about to sit in my lawn chair.

    2. Hah Hah ... I hear you on that! Now a question: Do you expect the ground to be snow covered in Red Deer until next spring or will there be some thaws?

  10. Neat shots- no snow here, but we are due for about five inches of rain through the weekend. It makes a sloppy drive for all those out fighting the crowds. Of which I am NOT one!

  11. This time of year always makes me feel tall! Looks like you got some real pretty snow. Our snow has melted a bit, the green grass is showing through in some spots in the yard. :)

  14. That's a tall shadow! It seems like the sun just moves around the horizon instead of across the sky at this time of year.
