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)

Shadow Games

Like window shutters
Like parallel ladders
Like slices of light

Linking to:
Shadow Shot Sunday 2

I like the soft natural leaves contrasted against the angular shadow lines.

Happy Shadow Seeking!

What a great shadow shot for the day, Gemma! It does look as if the plant is playing a game on a game board!! Fun! Have a great weekend and Happy New Year!

This is a great shadow - its angular pattern looks as if it may have been drawn with chalk. Perhaps it is for hopscotch, although it seems sized for mice to play again. Nice!

Catherine said...

Happy New Year.

Dianne said...
