    That is awesome. I bet it is hard to work through production with the light shining because your shadow will cover up whatever your placing. I might have to try it and use a stick or something!

    Nice. Reminds me of a book a saw recently with pictures taken from the air. The shadows of example cows and horses look really cool when the sun is low.

    I know this is not a concept/idea like this but just a fact in real life..
