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)

Driveway Shadows


I saw a strange gathering of shadow shapes and patterns in a Dromana driveway

A shadow display
Blocks, lines, smudges, lattice work
The art of sunlight

Ralph said...

The shame on the warm and shadowy day is that boat, sitting forlorn on its trailer. We hope the watercraft will come alive again in the water - soon!

The trellis makes such a symmetrical shadow. Sometimes I like such order! The tree and building add that haphazard look that I more often go for. he he. Happy SSS Miss Gemma!!

Doru said...

Amazing shadow shot!

Patti said...

I like the perspective you chose as we look down the driveway to the stored boat.

The lattice shadows are particularly pretty.

The sunny scene looks so tranquil, with no one in sight.

You're right, that is definitely an interesting combination. And an excellent find for a shadow shot!
