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)

Palm Illusion

A home in Drama parades a delightful palm shadow on a winter's sunny day!

Shadow Shot Sunday #171

Perhaps Tuscany
Perhaps an island retreat
Illusion of worlds

I love this scene. I can almost feel the warmth on the pastel wall of the building. I love how you shoot the environment around you.

That is a perfect shadow! I love it and it reminds me of Florida (no palm trees here in Oregon.)

This is really so beautiful, Gemma! Love the palm trees, the color and the fantastic shadows! And, as always, your words are the perfect touch! Hope your weekend is going well! Happy SSS!

I am so in the mood for illusions today! Thank you for indulging my mood!


Shadows of onyx, shadows of grey,
Shadows to chase my doldrums away;
Shadows each morning, shadows at night,
Shadows, O shadows, you’re my delight!

Nice shot, Gemma. I'd like to be sitting under a palm tree someplace where the weather is "perfect". Have a nice Sunday. Mickie ;)
