Wintry Shadows by the Sea


Wintry shadows on London Bridge Ocean Beach at the southern end of the Mornington Peninsula


The sands may be chilled
But a glimmer of sunlight
Invites wanderers

Shadow quote on chubskulit's Etcetera Etcetera:
Do we not all spend the greater part of our lives under the shadow of an event that has not yet come to pass.
- Maurice Maeterlinck



May the sunlight and shadows always be with you!

I am with MMT, the little girls seems not to mind the chilly weather.

It seems to be chilly as the sweaters and sweatshirts seem to suggest. But, barefoot in the sand is wonderful even if it is now the cool/cold season. Nice simple shadows!

Beaches are wonderful any time of year ... but in the winter, not so crowded. Makes for a great shadow picture :)
