Shadow Shot Sunday

It's been hot here this past week, with the
temp hovering near 100°F (38°C) some days.
I was so tempted to join this kid!

[To see more Shadow Shots, go here.]


  1. It's been hot here too....105 heat index....this is such a refreshing, and most perfect, summertime photo. Love the colors.

    My shadow this week is of a horn cleat [what you use to tie up a boat at the dock]


    Hope your weekend has treated you well.

  2. That's beautiful!!! I bet that kid is having an awesome time. You should have joined in! Perhaps next really hot day you could go back for a splash :)

  3. Oh my, I might have to gush over this one. It's fabulous in so many ways.. BRAVO Alexa!

  4. Pure, unadulterated joy!


    Imagine a shadow could talk
    In whisper or rumble or squawk;
    Just what would it say
    To make you go, “Hey!
    You’re just a chip off the old block!”?

    Shadows abound here and here

  5. I must echo everyone else - that is a fantastic photo! I love everything about it, but mostly the wonderful golden color of it and the sheer joy that emanates from it. It's fun and beautiful and definitely refreshing! And I also agree that you should join in next time, even if it means buying a waterproof camera. :-)

    I hope things cool off for you soon! It's supposed to hit 100º here today, but at least it's a dry heat (that sounds so trite, but it's oh-so-true) and we have cool mountain breezes by sunset. I feel so sorry for all the people and critters who have a hard time finding relief from that oppressive heat and humidity.

  6. A wonderful, sparkling shot! Brings out the kid in all of us :-)

  7. This is BEAUTIFUL! I love it!
    NIce work Alexa.

  8. Thanks, y'all! I think this picture is just the happy result of one lucky photo blogger + one joyful child who were both in the same place at the same time. :~}

  9. I like this site and saw it on Google search. And for it I like to appreciate for blogging about this and looking forward to reading more on your site.
