Shadow Shot Sunday 2: south central Alberta

Small critters cast shadows, as do small rocks.

Shadows of rose hips and rose leaves decorate a lichened rock.

Spiny shadows are cast by cacti in the desert part of the Alberta prairie.

Lovely series of shadow shots.

I was amazed to see "desert area" in Alberta! Always think of Canada as green or snowy! Beautiful, "intimate" shadows of the little things in Nature!

That looks hot and very dry. Great for shadow hunting, though:-)
