Shadow Dancing

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 10 February 2020 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Live oak trees line the sidewalk in Forsyth Park. I love the Spanish Moss that hangs from the trees. Spanish Moss is an air plant that photosynthesizes its own energy from the sun. The scales help the plant absorb water and nutrients, most of which come from minerals leached from the foliage of the live oak tree.

Spotted in Savannah, Georgia on October 8, 2019.

Magnificent oak trees. There was often this kind of beautiful driveway to enter the properties of the rich southern planters...

Great black and white from the shadows dancing Spanish moss on the trees.

I don't know if there is an identical term in English, but in Portuguese we call a path bordered by trees on both sides "Alameda".
And this is a beautiful "Alameda". The shadows are fantastic.
