Great composition, Erik! A brilliant idea to take a self-portrait this way! Cheers, Anne

Shadow on the Wall

OK shadow on the wood! But this was a good reason to mention the wonderful song by Mike Oldfield/Roger Chapman-Shadow on the Wall

Hi Anne I just found out our messages must have crossed each other.

The idea came to me as I tried to take a close-up from the Label on the tree. I made a mistake to get close on the sun side, and realized I was on the wrong side. As I saw the shadow it looked pretty cool. Took several pictures but i liked this one best.

Greetz, Erik

The thumbnail laat ook een ying en yang lijnenspel zien. Mooi gedaan Erik.

It is a cool shot Erik! A little wooden Erik or Erk :D

Hallo Gradus dat is toeval maar wel heel leuk. Bedank voor de tip!

Yeah Sam, they even got me tagged with a number from the Dutch Forestry Commission.

Groeten, Greetings, Erik

Very interesting idea here Erik. Almost a self portrait! Well Done. Herb

Thanks Herb, spicy name BTW. It was almost me! Although I must admit I was undercover that morning. It was freezing cold, with a nasty wind chill.

Hallo Tonia soms gebeurt er iets wat niet de bedoeling is.In dit geval was het meteen een bron van inspiratie.

Groeten, Erik

Yes, good idea very nicely executed :-)

Ik heb de jaarringen even geteld maar dan ga je ook al gauw richting 50 Erik, is natuurlijk niets mis mee zolang er nog groei in zit.

Groeten Luud

Zeg begin jij mij nu ook al op mijn leeftijd aan te vallen. Fraai hoor!. Begint zo langzamerhand een complot te worden.

Sabine aus Rostock on February 1, 2009

Great idea - a selfportrait in a different manner! I like this!

Greetings, Sabine

Erik van den Ham on February 1, 2009

Good morning Sabine and thank you for your kind comment. Really enjoyed your pictures from Nice. Did you also see the beautiful red rocks at Esterel?

Greetings, Grüsse, Erik

Hallo iedereen, ik snap soms niets van het acceptatiebeleid van Google. Deze foto evenals een stel andere close-ups worden goed gekeurd voor Google Earth. Natuurlijk best leuk maar zou nooit verwachten dat bijvoorbeeld zo'n vlinder foto goedkeuring krijgt.
