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)

Shadows to Reflections

The shadows round one of the entrances to Beleura Hospital, Mornington seemed to continue through the doorway and melt into reflections.

Shadow Shot Sunday #169

Light seems to play games
Shadows are drilled to conform
Winking reflection

Very nice shadow stretching from the outside to the inside.

The sharp shadows are a good contrast to the soft interior.

Nice soft shadows.

We may not be fond of entering hospital. Yet here, the entrance is soft in shadow and reflection. Perhaps the stylish view beckons us to enter with gentle persuasion. A look that is quite pleasant indeed!

bj said...

Such soft, pretty shadows.

Marja said...

lots of reflections on that window

Spadoman said...

Fantastic shot! Amazing how they continue into the building, and melt away indeed. I love the haiku as well. Wonderful!


Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Nice composition with many shadows and reflections.

Hmmm... Reflections were almost my theme for this SSS and I've seen it come up in quite a few posts this week. I wonder what the relevance is???
On a less deep note, your capture is so calming.
A welcoming vision of an entrance to an otherwise quite unnerving place.
Happy Sunday :)

This is really nice! It almost seems as if the shadows go right inside the door.

RNSANE said...
