One Oak Shadow

Following a fantastic meal at the H.G. Klebes Legion Post fundraising dinner in Sharon Saturday night, we did some traveling around, and this was one our stops. We walked up through Twin Oaks field to the first oak and took numerous photos of lots of different things. Clare suddenly said can you get the shadow? Operating with just my zoom, I made it work. I'm not sure if I have ever seen a picture of the shadow of the oak quite like this one, though it probably has been done. Until I see it, I'm going to enjoy my one-of-a-kind. :)

Shadow:shadow is an area where direct light from a light source cannot reach due to obstruction by an object. It occupies all of the space behind an opaque object with light in front of it. The cross section of a shadow is a two-dimensional silhouette, or reverse projection of the object blocking the light. The sun causes many objects to have shadows and at certain times of the day, when the sun is at certain heights, the lengths of shadows change.

Twin Oak trivia: guess the rough circumference of the lower tree.

if you guessed around twenty, you are in the right neighborhood!
