Shadow & Light II

By lucinka
Europe >> Switzerland >> West >> Valais

As I've got to green tone I've chosen another photo from my weekend trip to Switzerland. It was one of the last photos I took late afternoon during autumn when the shadows become very long and enhance shapes, contours and textures of the landscape.

It was captured on same place as my previous post but different composition has caught my attention. Lonely house with long shadow and small road leading to it.

Unfortunately I dont remember where exactly this photo was taken as I was rushing to the airport.

Superb use of the conditions Lucie, it's so simple and yet so striking.

those shadows looke vaguely menacing, as though they're reaching for the little cottage....but that could just be me......

I'm surprized that you were in a rush because this is very well composed.

The thumb print leaves the viewer hanging but the larger frame is not without in the contrast and the vivid greens adds to the quality of interest Lucie.
