Shadow Shot Sunday #40

One of my brothers is the pastor of a Catholic Church out in the country. It sits on a ridge-top with a fantastic view. The following snapshots were taken during a visit this week. The shadows of trees and statuary on the grounds and buildings were expected, but I was so surprised to find that the shots taken of the view (just to capture the beauty) also had shadows of the trees even though they were quite some distance away. I hope you enjoy them.

What looks like people in this shot are actually statues in the Grotto reflecting on the ground

This is the rectory (priest home). Trees on the side of the church.
Shadows under the stairway into the school.
Trees on the side of the school building.
This was taken to record the beauty of the view but, if you enlarge it, you will notice that ,in the distance, the trees cast shadows on the hillside.
