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)

Flower Shadows

Touches of shadow
Like etchings of Spring beauty
Mesmerising tones

Shadows like this mean you get two images for the price of one!

Here you are having spring and we are freezing here in the country. The shadows really do make this shot so beautiful. Great job with the lighting.

A beauty, Gemma. First the softness, then the shadows, and then, like Dimple, the 'sunbathing bug'! Tks for coming by and taking a look at my kingfisher, and the looping power lines.
