Pines and shadows~Shadow Shot Sunday~070713

Hubby and I took a 4 night trip to Idyllwild, which is up in our local San Jacinto mountains, last weekend.  I took this photo the afternoon we arrived (Sunday) because I liked the way the tree limbs were shading the pines.  It was just so nice up there!  It was 20-25 degrees cooler than the desert, although Saturday it was 101 degrees, even up at 6,000 feet in the mountains!  PHEW!  By Sunday, it was down to 99 degrees, then the mid-80's for the rest of the week.  We even had some sprinkles Sunday night.  We enjoyed our break from the desert heat, but now we are home for a long stretch...sigh...Shadow Shot Sunday for July 7, 2013.

Those spidery shadows are so unique! Do the needles not make a shadow?

Good question, Jeanne...I believe the needles would be on the left side, but, with the sunlight, they aren't on the tree. GOOD EYE!

Wonderful detail of fine shadowy lines!
