Shadow Shot Sunday # 7

I CAN'T BELIEVE how quickly Sundays come around. It's only # 7 for me, but the highly talented Tracy of Hey Harriet who hosts Shadow Shot Sunday is up to # 34. I really look forward to checking out her blog every Sunday morning to see the wonderful collages she conjures up of the various images linked to her blog. Some of the participants take your breath away with their imagination and artistic talent.

There were a couple of shadow shots which I took over the Christmas break which in my mind were earth shattering, but in reality were pretty ordinary. So this week I have taken a trip back to this time last year when we were staying with some friends at their beach house on the Central Coast of New South Wales. They took us rock hopping at nearby Killcare Beach and we came across this amazing sight. I'm glad I wasn't around when it was formed!




The other image was taken in June last year at an exhibition I took part in. No, I wish I could lay claim to being the wonderful potter, but I was selling my children's clothing. All these beautiful pieces of pottery sold on the opening night.


I will be back in the saddle tomorrow, re-opening my Etsy shop after an absence of three weeks. My Bernina has been sulking away in my sewing room, but I gave it a pretty good working over today, so at least I will have a few new items to take the place of those sold before Christmas.

It's marvellous to have a break, but oh so good to be back doing what I love.

Good to have you back too and what wonderful formations on that beach, you can almost visualize the dinosaur wondering the mudflats...I have an over-active imagination! Ha...

Have a great Sunday!

Love Nature's artwork on the beach! Those shapes look like mini pottery kilns! And that connects beautifully with the gorgeous pottery in your second photo!

Those rocks and formations must have been a sight to see! The sky looks so blue and clear too.

This is a great SSS duet. Actually, they're very different but also very much alike. Great comparison and contrast.

Hey Harriet said...

Great having you back chasing shadows. So glad that you're enjoying it! Me too! I'm always blown away with all the creativity of the shadow shooters :) And that beach shot is one of those mind-blowing moments! Love it! Killcare beach? Odd name for a beach...kind of scary. That pottery shadow shot is also lovely.

You mentioned something about bringing coffee. Are you very far off? My trombone is getting cold ;D

Looking forward to seeing your new creations in your Etsy shop!

What a wonderful sight! Very cool shot - Gemma's right, they do look like little kilns that just fired the pottery below!
