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)

Evening Reflections

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ As light fades, a last glimmer of sunset lights reflects in a glass door leading to my verandah.
Weekend Reflections #62

Pink glow closing day
Like a small passing film frame
A flash and it's gone

Intersting shot. I like the way the shadow seems to be drinking those reds...

I liked that, both the haiku and that coloured reflection.
I don't stop by often as the connect bar slows down the loading or maybe another script. Even on broadband it takes five minutes before I can move the page. Sorry.

I love the red in the darkness
and the pattern of your curtains

The grain in this shot gives it a dreamy feel and I like the splash of color!

A lovely pink sky reflected here.

Even just one glimpse of it reflected in glass, is indicative of how beautiful the whole effect must have been. Well done!
