Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadow

This week’s challenge: capture a shadow that’s a meaningful part of the image.

It was a lovely day on the Oregon Coast, with ideal lighting conditions that sent me seeking photographic treasures, with this image a prized find. I love the specific shadow cast by the sand dollar, repeating the curve of the sand dollar but also indicating the change in shape of the hollow beneath it. I also love the dramatic contrast and depth created by shadow throughout the sandy scene. I was very fortunate to have found this little treasure on that ramble.
