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)

Beautiful words and lovely shadows! I love the soft, leafy look around the window! Great post as always, Gemma! Wishing you a very happy weekend!



Seems like the shadows are moving about, and can imagine hearing gentle rustling sounds. Very
expressive shadows!

Shining in, shining out, shining at. Cool concept! Always a pleasure here Gemma.

The shadows from outside give those inside a sunny view. Th shadows provide relief from a strong sun, yet adds artistry in shadow. The view from inside is inviting, the day looks wonderful from the bow-window outside. Perhaps we need to leave our abode and enjoy the sunny day...

I can't help but wonder what your neighbours think when you point and shoot your camera!


Even in shadow, where there is no light,
One may take comfort and one may delight
That darkness has lost its power to thrall
Those who are living on this earthly ball.

With all those dancing shadows I imagine the view from inside that window looking out to the trees is lovely!

I hope you're enjoying the long Easter weekend Gemma! I love that it's an extra long long weekend this year :)

Lovely ShadowShot Gemma. Did you know the home's owners?? I always wonder if people think I'm casing their house when I snap a photo of it!! Have a good week.

Gotta love those leafy shadows, Gemma! I can't get over how green it still is there. I thought it was autumn in Australia!
