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)

Art of Morning Shadows


Art of early morning shadows on a school building wall.

Scattering shadows
Collage of tiered canvases
Like wand'ring minstrels

There is something very soft and gentle about these morning shadows. Lovely!

The early morning sun allows for tentative shadows on the wall - the longer shadows are part of your autumn, a mosaic thad leaves its dappled beauty for all of us to admire...

Knowing it's your Autumn but it never shows in your bright sunny day. Making me envious as our Spring is almost Summer in Australia. Amazing, when Mother Nature decides.

Absolutely calm ambiance here. Good Morning DownUnder... I will be missing You §;-)

Happy SSS,
