Beyond the Shadows

Beyond the shadows
Morning shadows, Southern California

beyond the shadows
a hillock of parched grasses
crying out for rain

Man that is born of woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.
- Job 14:1-2, King James Version



May the sunlight and shadows always be with you!

The shadow cools but does not feed the dry grasses - the relief is for the desert photographer only...

Beautiful scene tho, I'm sure most of our country is 'crying for rain'. I know it is HERE too.

My post is a shadow of course, but be forewarned another image may make you squeamish.
