As I wondered around Lunenburg on a beautiful calm Sunday morning, my attention was primarily on reflections on the calm waters. However, the soft light also cast interesting shadows and enhanced colours on the buildings around me. Even industrial components and weather-battered surfaces had a lovely glow due to the sunlight and refractions softening the shadows. The photograph here is of three electric transformers and their floating shadows along an old red shed. Strong vertical lines created by the supporting pole, its shadow and the two white lines on the shed balance the image. Horizontal electric wires and their shadows connect all the shapes. The squat trio of transformers and their shadows keep the image centred among all the criss-crossing lines.
