By pamelajean
I WILL BE AWAY FOR JANUARY AND FEBRUARY, with no internet connection, and will miss you all very much.
I'm taking my bike to the New Forest. It will be a time for reminiscence and rejuvenation, at one with nature again.

I parked my bike in a local park to take some pictures, and turned round to find this wonderful shadow.
1/52sec @ f8, ISO100, 7.20mm FL, AP, WB manual, High sat, Polariser.

Having recently uploaded a 'bike and shadow' shot myself I was immediately drawn to this. The red reflector shadow helps a lot, even though it disobeys 'rules' by being in the very centre.
If you want any info on the New Forest get in touch; I wrote the guide book (well, one of them - honestly!)
