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)

The crop is nice, the off centred position is nice and i love the shadow.

Just love your little cupid angel or "putto" as the Italians call him. :)

What a sweet little cupid! My mil used to have one. I wonder where he went? I especially like it that yours is white, just as a change from terra cotta which is what I've mostly seen.
