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)

I like the dappled effect in this shot...

Like Catherine, I love the dappled effect, too! Lovely shadow shot for the day! Hope your weekend is going well, Gemma!

Lovely shadow, Gemma, especially in contrast with the bright sunlight. And little fountains have a special charm all their own. "Posy" is the perfect word.

The trees are moving their shadows at will - alas, the fountain may soon be covered. Happily, the warmth of the sun is visually cooler just my looking at the moving water. What I see to the right looks like a leg and claw are on the ground. Attavhed to something that seems totally relaxed...

You were so right dear friend, my pc wouldn't let me sign in this morning, so I'm quite late for the SSS, but when I got home from work and turned it on, it cured itself while I was at work...well, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!!!

What a beautiful fountain and beautiful sunlit day, sure hope your Spring has kicked in, we've had frosty mornings warming into the 50-60's in the afternoon, but we won't delude ourselves, we know what cometh...YUCK...

Sorry to hear you still have to use pain-killers, we just don't heal as fast as we used to, but for me, staying active really helps me out. I haven't had a cold or the flu for 3 years, but then again, I avoid people, working in the school system is a rough one for passing around the bugs.

Yes Piper and I are having a blast with our new goods and have already sold 8 posters, people are loving the new look of our store, but I sure couldn't pull this look off up at Sisters' Garden, where most of my antique shots come from...I decorate a room in the upstairs up there and have been doing it for 15 years. It's a beautiful shop, but ours is quirky...MY STYLE!!!

I finally have a day off tomorrow...what to do, what to do...wish I had an ocean view to gaze at...guess I'll clean out the chicken coop...ahhhh, the life of the farm-wannabe...ha!

Take care dear sister and don't work to hard on those need more ocean air...for medicinal purposes!!!

Big hugs dear friend!

Hello Gemma! Love your fountain! we are imagining that there is a paw there on the right that surrounds that fountain - a water bowl for a favorite feline pet!
Do enjoy the week ahead!!

It does indeed appear as though the shadows are creeping up on the fountain. Wonder what they have in mind...


Shadows creeping through the land,
Shadows dark on every hand—
If they should begin to glow,
You had better run, you know!

the shadows will soon be taking over the fountain. wonderful mix of water flowing and shadows dancing. the picture moves without meaning to.

This is a beautiful photo. I love seeing the ripples on the water from the fountain.
