Shadows on snowy slopes, superb

The shadow cast on the snow doesn't accurately mirror the fence.
I had to go to the hospital Saturday. This may sound odd, but I was in an incredibly good mood. When you are puzzling through a serious heart problem, a blue sky above bright, white snow with cold, crisp, winter air makes one feel oh-so-alive. And that a-l-i-v-e feeling spells happiness.

On the way home from the hospital I saw the shadow featured today. The road home went up a small hill  leaving the university grounds — the hospital is just north of the university. A black iron fence ran beside the roadway. The moment I saw the shadow cast by the fence climbing that small hill, I knew I had a picture.

Saturday was one fine day!
