Many thanks for all you kind C&Cs regarding the berry garland.

After I had arrived home quite late I had prepared about 5 critter shots and then realized that it is shadow time. Quick HD search... oh yes I've got a winter shadow.
Taken last February on the conservatory @ home.

I'm glad you mentioned that this was last February. I was hoping it was too early for ice.
This is a wonderful, very creative B&W shot. I love it.

A different shadow - as Albert says, a sign of things to come.
I had been fearing that winter might kill the shadows challenge, but if we get the occasional sunny day there could still be life in the old dog yet...

The vertical icicles and shadows look so good against the horizontals. Lovely textures as well, Annette.
