    Yes, basic geometry. The taller one will be casting a longer shadow to begin with. You can use the idea of similar triangles to think about it. As the sun sets, the taller shadow will get longer and longer, compared to the shorter one. But either way, the shadows and triangles will be congruent to one another.
