This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Shadowed.  I have toyed with the obvious ideas of shadows but instead have gone for a feeling of being shadowed from the heat of the day.

These photos were taken in July on the Isola Madre in Lake Maggiore in Italy.  The island is a botanic garden full of lush planting and shadows from the bamboos and are exotics create cool places to escape from the mid-day sun.

      If you follow the link in my post it will lead you there. WordPress host it and you can access it via your reader if you are on wordpress. They do other daily blogging challenges as well.

    Beautiful images, Helen – and inspiring ideas for getting a little shade in a very sunny location… 😉

  5. Lovely – one can almost feel the heat in the air!

  6. Your second photo really grabs your attention and makes you think about perspective.

    Good interpretation. I have just returned home (UK) from the Antipodes where I appreciated the shade provided by big trees shadowing over me 🙂
