Seeking Sister Moon

Apache County, Northern Arizona

Seeking Sister Moon,
I found her chasing shadows
in the arroyo.

  1. Arroyo – ‘kuivunut virranuoma’…It’s only fair if I learn a new word here that I translate it, right? 🙂 Happy Sunday!

  2. (Arroyo sounds like such a romantic word!) Lovely dusky colours marked with shadow!

  3. The arroyo would be raging right now in my parts – and we didn’t get nearly as much rain as many!

  4. A shadow bridge! How awesome is that . Same arroyo you visit, I assume, just a different spot? What a treat.

  5. It almost seems like a human limb falling across the gully. Perhaps to pull each of the dry river banks together. Nice, the rough land allows for lovely shadows!

  6. You amaze me with your beautiful shots and your accompanying haiku.You have those talents of the Everready Bunny… can keep going and going and going. I would love to go walking in a spot like this. It is so very different from anything I see here in VA. You photo is a beautiful one and has “Come See Me” written all over it. genie

  7. Marvelous shadow shot! You do find such great ones out there in the wild!! Love them! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  8. Once again, a beautiful capture. Your Shadow Shots always make the everyday seem unusual. Happy SSS.

  9. Very good photo.

    Regards and best wishes
