How nice to wake up to that lovely shadow, Dianne! And thanks for commenting on SWF! :)

magiceye said...

...beautiful.....

Sylvia K said...

Oh, that's lovely! Lord knows I wish we had enough sunlight to cast some shadows so maybe I could catch one or two myself. Doesn't seem likely after checking the weather report!

Dianne said...

bob-cat - thanks!! I adore those candle holders :)

mary - it was a wonderful sight. and I was thrilled that my camera was with me, usually it's downstairs and I don't know that I would have made the trip lol

magiceye - thank you ...

sylvia - Friday and Saturday were amazing days. In the 40s and sunny. My son was even inspired to do all the outside decorations for Christmas which he hates to do. It was funny - within a half hour of Jeff being out there everyone was out LOL
I'll share some shots of the house later in the month - I'm trying not to get sick of Christmas before it gets here ;)

Kelly said...

What gorgeous shadows that you get to wake up to in your bedroom! I love the reflections of your candles, they are just gorgeous! This Shadow Shot meme is so much fun and I'm learning so much for everyone. Thanks for this lesson too! I'm paying so much more attention to everything now!!

Very cool shot. I bet the shadows were gone in about 10 minutes, if that.

Wonderful, Dianne. You always come up with such goodies. I love your photos.

Paula Scott said...

Makes me feel like I'm just waking up and still sleepy-eyed!

Lily Hydrangea said...

beautiful peaceful shadow shots, very nice!

Dianne said...

jan - you're right! they flitted and then died out - it was such a lucky catch!

bobbie - thanks, I really appreciate that :)

paz - thanks, I wish I could find a way to hang on to that serenity lol
that room becomes a hive of screaming cats looking for breakfast and phones ringing far too soon each day

The Summer Kitchen Interiors said...

Always love shadows of blinds on walls, floors and furniture...perhaps because it looks peaceful and quiet!
Enjoy your week!

Twinkle Star Art said...

Very charming photograph. I love the soft light filtering in.

Raven said...

What a gorgeous photo. Your pictures are getting better and better.

Lisa B. said...

Nice one Dianne!

ramblingwoods said...

I actually was thinking shadows when the sun was out on Sat...They do have their own personality..Love the shade shadow..

Hey Harriet said...

How lovely to wake up to such a scene! Gorgeous shot, love the subtle pinkish tinge of the blind shadow across your door. Then I noticed the perfect little shadow from your candle holder! Very sweet image :)

Gina said...

Beautiful shadows..love the softness and slight tinge of colour..and that candlestick!! WOW :D

me ann my camera said...

I love this kind of shadow that throws patterns on my wall. It is so transitory, yet can enter without knocking and peek into dark corners without even asking. Very nice!

annette said...

Hi Dianne, what a lovely soft shadow to wake up to, not the harsh, eyesquinting type!! and ditto to the comments on your candles - beautiful. ;0)

Dianne said...

m.kate - thanks so much :)

ppdesigns - I appreciate that :)

summer kitchen - me too, it's one of the reasons I love havingblinds and not curtains

twinkle - thanks :)

raven - I guess if I take enough shots there has to be some improvement lol
thanks :)

lisa b - thank you :)

rambling - the sun was wonderful Saturday, had that winter clarity to it :)

harriet - I didn't notice the candle holder until I saw the photo! I just saw the blinds and had to take a shot :)

gina - thank you, I loved the softness too! made the room seem much nicer than it really is lol

me ann - that's a lovely way to put it. ever since I joined SS I see them everywhere :)

annette - thanks so much. if I open the blinds on the other side of the room I get the eye squinting sun :)

Diane Mandy said...

That *IS* a beautiful photo!

Bumpkin Bears said...

Glad I found your blog. I love the shadows that sun creates especially when it shines through trees. hugs, Catherine

Pagan Sphinx said...

Oh, nice! Those sunny shadows are my favorite.

Dianne said...

diane - thanks!!

catherine - welcome!! I agree about shadows through trees, they a bit like webs of shadow :)

pagan - thanks :)

Hot Fudge said...

This is a beautiful shot. It invites you in to investigate further. For instance, I immediately am drawn to the book waiting to be read and wonder what the title is.

Dianne said...

hot fudge - thank you! it is Rosie O's first book 'Find Me'.

dot said...

Wow, that made a pretty picture! I bet it would look good in B&W too.

Linda said...

You're right - that's an excellent shadow shot! Very pretty!

Dianne said...

dot - thanks. I'll try it in B&W :)

linda - thanks!!

Mojo said...

Very -- very -- cool shot. The angles, light/shadow... I love it.

(Did you try it in black and white? Just curious. I bet it would be even more compelling.)

MyMaracas said...

Gorgeous. Great light and shadows, and somehow melancholy.

Dianne said...

mojo - I did try it in B&W, it's posted on 'the world in black & white' - link on my sidebar
it's OK - I like the color better

myMaracas - yes, I see the melancholy too - thanks :)
