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)

Mosaic of Patterned Woods

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ It has been raining and raining on the last couple of weekends.
I was itching to take some photos for time out.
Then, I looked down at my feet and noticed how the wet woods of the verandah were revealing some interesting patterns.
And so was born this Mosaic Monday.

Great words to show the intricate art of one's deck.

Wood and woodwork is admirably suited for monochrome photos - as you have shown us here.

What a great idea for a Mosaic! We never think to look down and see what's under our feet. Have a great day!

Agree w/ Sherrie - what a fantastic subject for a mosaic. Nicely done!
