Mountain shadows are beautiful and intriguing. Mountains with snow and shadows are magnificently beautiful. I live in a high desert valley surrounded by mountains. Especially in the evenings I love to admire shadows on the mountains. Today I took the following photos. I love the huge shadow on the mountain just under the snow (top center photo). Not only were there snow and shadows on the mountains, but I noticed buds have popped up on some trees, a seasonal reminder that Spring is near. Three in one day - snow, shadows, and Spring. Lovely nature's beauty.
