Casting a long shadow

I'm immediately reminded of the photos I've see out in the deserts of the Mid-East where camels cast their long shadows. Well done, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Oh yes, I love those, some of them are real optical illusions. Thanks very much Ginnie.

Great catch here, Frank and that long shadow makes the pictures. Wonderful B&W. I assume this biker knows what he is doing. Hope he did not go in alone.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Astrid. Don't worry, he wasn't alone.
Très belle prise de vue .., bien vue !
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Claudine.
