The Weekend in Black and White: Shadows on the snow

I've been taking a lot of shadow shots this winter.
I was glad we got enough snow to play around with snow and shadows.
I like snow with sunny days in general and that combination results in a lot of shadows to play with. 
I thought the tree stumps looked like a row of hats below.
I had trouble deciding which shot to use this week.

The sun and the snow give the opportunity for high contrast shots.

Great views and shadows of the winter landscape.

I agree-the stumps do look like hats. Like the first shot a lot too-the bridge gives the foreground interest.

I like the added starkness B&W provides.

These would have been a total waste in colour - but great in monochrome!

Lots of them indeed, and all excellent. Beautiful in the snow.

Sun on snow makes a wonderful canvass for your shadow 'paintings' (and they look like fine art)!

Great photos, love the way white snow frames up photo subjects so beautifully
