“All the beauty of life is made up of light and shadow.” (Leo Tolstoy)

Shadows are just as much part of our lives as lights, and they can be beautiful photo objects. This is why this month, we want you to chase the shadows in your surroundings and share your most impressive capture in our Picture of the Month Contest. Get out, find shadows in unusual places or just around the corner and impress us!
