Snow and Car Collect Some Shadows

This photo was taken on January 22, 2014 at 2:44 PM 
The location was in front of my house in Bethesda, Maryland.
The "Take It!" came from my getting out to clear the car from snow after the sun had come out and was in a clear sky.  The shadows formed were sharp and gave full reign to imagination.   
On the hood of the car it almost seems as if there is a shadow that is casting its own shadow on a downward and forward slant.  This is of course not possible - but fun to think of.   
The second shadow sort of looks like a peace sign coming from the trunk of the tree in the foreground - rather like a hand within a full sleeve , protruding upward toward the front right of the car.
Figure imaginings from shadows are for me - as much fun as finding shapes in clouds.
Best wishes,


PS:  Yes, I did clear the snow from the car,  and while the shadows had shifted due to the sun moving in the sky - the shadows cast were not the same on the exposed silver paint of the car as they were on the brilliant white of the snow.

    Looks like a spider web on the car. Pretty neat looking.

    That looks beyond cold! I think I may have opted to stay in by the fire.

    Open the door and see this, back inside I go. This looks like one of those times a garage would have been awesome. However in having one you would not have gotten the cool photo, so maybe its a good thing.

    Did you happen to build a snowman while you were out there? Looks like a beautiful day and a perfect setting.

    I'm with Mike on this one, it does look like a web.
