Shadows on Pumpkins

 Medium-sized pumpkin hanging from apple tree

A local farm and orchard has decorated apple trees with pumpkins and other gourds for the second year in a row (maybe more years than that, but I know for sure they did it last year too).

 White pumpkin and shadow

Last time I was there the sun was shining creating lovely shadows.

Another pretty shadow

Great photos with all the shadows dancing. A great idea that the farmer had.

Hanging pumpkins? I rather like that idea, although our squirrels would take one look and shout "Hooray! It's all you can eat buffet today!"

I especially like the top photo - the light and shadows add a ghostly appearance to the pumpkins.It's nice to see the gourds hanging, a much more creative approach having a sea of pumpkins on the round - extremely cool!

I bet ancient people celebrated the vegetable gifts similarly

That is an unusual custom. Great shadow shots.

Your photos have great color and shadows, but the custom of hanging pumpkins from trees is unusual.

You capture pretty shots and well utilized the light and shadows on pumpkins! Should be interesting checking this apple tree decorated with pumpkins
