AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Pseudo Candle Shadows

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Shadows from candle ornaments in my kitchen window
Shadow Shot Sunday #34

Candlelight shadows
Sunlight beaming through glass bulbs
No flames are dancing

Ooooooo...the sun and how warm and inviting it is from your new window view. Alongside the music, I'm drifting away to a land of exotic landscape and welcoming views.

I love having an over-active imagination...don't you, there's just a different kinda playground for us there...

I wouldn't want to see the 'Commador' below walk into my grooming parlor...sorry, I lost my brush...pleading for mercy! Ha!

Have a great Sunday friend!

I'm really happy about the international bogs I'm discovering. It feels as if I'm on a virtual holiday.
Greetings from Belgium !

I could sit in front of this window with a cup of something hot and a good book and let the morning pass away without a second thought. Beautiful.

Beautiful work. What a great time of year to seek shadow pictures in this fair city of ours, bathed in summer sun.

Wonderful and excellent photo the sun shining through that coloured glass is so exquisite, the shadows are perfect and the composition is marvellous! I love it!

What a lovely shot, Gemma; lovely looking at the intricacies of the shadows and then out beyond the window

Gallery Juana said...

The shadows came out really well and look so delicate, like lace. This is a very inviting window.

Terri said...

Oh that's beautiful! Such perfect replications of the candles!

PJ said...

It must be a great pleasure to see the light through these ornaments as the light changes throughout your day. Great SSS photo.

Hey Harriet said...

Oh Gemma I love your collection of candles and their wonderful shadows. Such a beautiful spot to spend time. I also love how the photo is divided, with the lush colours in the top half and sweet nuetrals below. I want to hang out at your house! Have a great Sunday :)

so pretty - and the greenish tint is lovely

Raven said...

Beautiful objects and beautifully captured shadows. I'll bet they reflect the light too and make lovely patterns on the wall.

Tessa said...

Oooh, I love the symmetry of the shadows. The photo would also look stunning if you turned it upside down, don't you think?
