We have booked our Spring trip to the Spanish property today and that got me looking into the Spanish photo archives, Archive Diving being such a popular pastime at this grey time of year in the UK. I came upon V's1 & 12, pictures of a huge, blowsy tart of a flower that grows in a neighbours garden. I was fascinated by the shadows of the stamens in these backlit shots and I thought that they fitted in with the Saturday Shadow theme.

After a Spanish Shadow hunt here we have a variety of shots, all taken in Spain last year and all with different shadow interest. Not all of them were taken in Calpe where the property is located and where the map location is. V's 2 & 6 were taken in Valencia and V8 in Denia.

Anyway, thank you for looking and I hope that you enjoy at least some of them.

An excellent shot Lynne, gorgeous colour, detail and shadows. Love the presentation too.
Unfortunately no variations uploaded yet.

WHOOPS variations now viewable, with V7 being my favourite.

A terrific set of shadowy images Lynne all beautifully presented with your superb skills.
I do love the yellow flower against the blue sky in both V1 and V12, butId choose V3 for impact and simplicity.
Also V6 for those for those wonderful shapes and shadows.
V7 is also a lovely flower image with your great border.

A superbly taken set,Lynne. Wonderful colour and great light.
Compare with V1&V12, I think that I might prerfer V12... ;V7's color , clarity and light are superb;and V8&V9.. generally speaking, the clarity of all the images are great.
I don't know the V3 and V11's aperture. , personally, I prefer the focal point on the plant, maybe it was a bit windy...the colour and light are beautiful..

Oh how these pictures made me want to be there again! You have some excellent shots here. I love the canopy in V2, everything about V4, the architectural study in V6, and the shadow man who has had a fright in V9.
