This time of year in Vermont we can have gorgeous, bright sunny days. Add to that a covering of snow and it is the perfect place to enjoy shadows, big and small. Shadow theater has long been part of our artistic palette, perhaps one of the reasons I love to see them.
Too, they are ever changing—the sun moving in and out of clouds, the wind in the trees—shadows that were one way on my outbound walk are different on the way back!
Although I have no photograph to show this, a couple weeks ago I was entranced watching a child clearly walking with her shadow and carrying on a conversation with it as well! I know I had a long talk with some shadows of Beech leaves chattering in the breeze this week—why not?!
If the sun is shining where you are today, perhaps you’ll find time to enjoy a shadow or two, either big or little no matter which.
