Shadows in the Snow

How interesting, shadows.
A duplicate of the original, but really not.
There this moment but block out the light, and it is not.
Shadows, how interesting.
Here are a dozen photos of plants and more from the Gardens at Waters East.  The sun has created objects yet not created;  duplicated yet not duplicated.  Interesting.

Enjoy a moment or two of reflection while reflecting.
