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)

Ms. Becky said...

you've captured a wonderful variation of light in this photo. fine shadows, with that glow of light on the walk! I truly love your Winter prose under the header. this isn't my first visit here and I don't know why I haven't noticed that before this. happy SSS to you Gemma.

There are shadows everywhere--even thin and subtle ones between the paving stones/bricks. Luscious!


Shadows above me,
Shadows below;
Some shadows swift and
Some shadows slow;
All of these shadows,
It’s plain to see,
Are my compadres—
Sweet company!

Scissor Those Shadows!

The texture of the brick makes the shadows all the more lovely!

Sylvia K said...

Lovely variety of sharp and soft shadows for the day, Gemma! Such a peaceful and lovely place!

The iron gate is imposing, a heavy weight barrier to keep people out. Yet, the sun and tree shadows fall on the drive, and their soft character is so affirming and welcoming - not nearly as off-putting at the the stone and iron edifice. Maybe I am invited...

Spadoman said...

I love the shot, and I love the words. Shadow exhibition indeed. What a unique wrought iron design on the gate! Great work all around.

That is an amazing gate, and you've captured a beautiful gathering of shadows there.

What a lovely collection of shadows on this bricklike driveway. It is a magical shot. I like the way the image flows across my screen. Genie

Joan said...

Definitely is a parade. Pretty.

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Nice shadow shot.


Kelly said...

Oooo....I love that gate!!

Cassie said...

Man, I would love a gate like that, but when we finally do get one, it will have to be able to keep our pooches in. A nice, serene photo Gemma. Happy SSS.

Jeanette said...

What a lovely gate and shadow too. They are very nice.
