Shadow Shot 120 - Promenade des Anglais, Nice

















Autumn may be arriving and settling in other places, but here on the Riviera it is still glorious sunshine with temperatures of 25 plus. As the afternoon lengthens on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, so do the shadows...


















The promenade which sweeps the Baie des Anges on the seafront at Nice, is the perfect place for a pleasurable sunset stroll....

Those looooooooong afternoon shadows are always worth a second look!


SHADOW BOLD

Shadow bold and shadow bright,
Shadow with me day and night,
Shadow taller than a tree,
Tell me what you think of me!

The shoppers leave a panorama of shadow under the strong Mediterranean sun. They go to and fro on their travels, and the solar effects have the shadows seeming to move even faster than the subjects. Nice is absolutely beautiful!

How lucky to have such a view from your apartment.

The shadows may be long, signifying that the day is coming to an end but the strollers are enjoying the weather too much to call it a day.
