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)

Row of Symbolic Posts?


A view of a part of London Bridge Ocean Beach on the Mornington Peninsula.
I understand why the fence on the left exists - to help walking down steep steps to the beach.
But why the isolated, unconnected posts along the sands?
Like a symbolic warning of unstable sands?

Enigmatic posts
Stirring some careful answers
Like lost boundaries

I wonder if rope once hung from post to post. I like the shadows - the posts and shadows create a zigzag line.

Rita said...

I some post like that when we were visiting in California. I also wonder why they were there. Will have to go google for an answer.

Kind of intriguing indeed.

Maybe they are just the remains of a long ago fence.

Great picture.

Keep off the dunes? It looks so desolate on the beach!

The word "enigmatic" is so perfectly used here. I wonder why the posts....intriguing.....

I have seen posts like that on dunes but there was a rope connecting them. Maybe this was a fence that was never completed. Love this shot!

Must have been prehistoric people like Stonehenge. Are they made of stone?
