This beautiful shot with its long shadow cast is a bit of a riddle to me: in some way the shadow lines on the tarmac do not seem to be leading to the shadow lines in the grass (most of them) towards the van. What is the object that produced these interesting shadows? :hmmm:
@Walter Thanks a lot!

I think it is an effect of the land sloping down after the tarmac so the shadows are not on a level ground.
@BosseBe is right on track. My own shadow is flanked by those from trees (and a street lamp) behind me but those are fainter on the tarmac, so simply less visible (I pulled exposure slightly, too). The (former) field forms a shallow bowl, the street I'm standing on is part of its rim. The shallow grass line that catches the light in front of me and the fact that the ground dips just behind it cause the deeper shadow in the upper center (there are a farm house and a clump of big trees on the left). If you follow the leg shadows and continue on, you can pick out my torso beside the trunk of the tree on my left, whereas arms and head are still hidden by the shadow of its branches. The whole scene is around 100 metres long. What triggered my interest was the brightly lit orange delivery van - the rest of the composition fell into place, so to speak.

Relief artwork depicting the consecration of the Almudena Cathedral in Madrid/Spain by Pope John Paul II in 1993.
Notice the fine detail on the clothing and especially faces of the persons. King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofía on upper left, Pope John Paul II on upper right.
