Shadow Shot Sunday 134 - Cap D'Ail

In a few days' time, I will be heading back home to Cap D'Ail on the French Riviera after spending Christmas and New Year at my other home in London. Hopefully sunshine and blue skies will be greeting me on my return.....
Here are some shadow shots from the coastal path outside my apartment which runs from Cap D'Ail to Monaco. These were taken in mid December, so it is easy to see why people started to winter here during the Belle Epoque era....

For more shadow shots from around the world, click here for the new Shadow Shot Sunday. Enjoy!!

Quite a different view from where you spent the holidays, I'm sure - but both beautiful in their own way. Yes...I can see why this would be a popular winter vacation spot!

All the best for the new year!

This view is wonderful - the blue sky and azure waters are great, and this path cut into the rocky hillside is amazing engineering, allowing us to follow the path and admire the scenery. The wall and shadow will protect us if our minds wander as we enjoy the scenery...Happy New Year!

All the best in 2012.

I hope you had a splendid Christmas in your other home and will be greeted with a warm and wonder-filled New Year in your recently adopted one. I look forward to discovering more of this gorgeous, light-filled corner of the world through your camera lens and informative commentary.
Bonne année!

What a seductive little path! Who know what delights might be waiting for those who follow it.

Happy New Year!

SHADOWS AROUND ME

Shadows around me, shadows above;
Menacing shadows? No, just of love.
Shadows around me at work or play,
Shadows to guide me through each today.
