Shadow Shot Sunday 139 - Le Cannet


At the golden hour in Le Cannet, pollarded trees cast spooky, sinister shadows on the glowing walls of a beautiful Belle Epoque villa. Such trees and their shadows are a strong feature around town....

So, so pretty....I've not heard of this type of tree, so it not only was pretty, educational too.

Those tree shadows are indeed spooky, like Sylvia said.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week seeking shadows.

You're absolutely right - those ARE spooky shadows!

The wonderful lighting in the first photo is fascinating! The shadows of the tree boughs are quite gnarled like reaching, creepy long fingers!

Ralph said...

The tree that makes the shadow does seem to resemble a bony hand reaching up its bony fingers to grasp the home...well, shadows do get our imaginations to work overtime it might seem!

I don't know what pollard trees are, but I agree-they can have a sinister look to them!

Joanna said...

Gorgeous golden colors and the shadows are so lumpy and cute.

I'm not sure, are the shadows spooky or are they lifting their arms in praise?

Cassie said...

Wow, those are some very interesting trees. They sure cast neat shadows and lucky for us, you captured them! Very nice Catherine. Have a good weekend.

The tree appears to be crawling up the wall.

Luckily the children sleeping behind the windows don't see those spooky shadows;)

That first shot is fantastic! I love the ochre against the blue sky as well as that quirky shadow playing on the building.
