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)

Shadowy Carriage

Carriage and shadows waiting to take passengers on a scenic ride through Melbourne streets

Take a new journey
Ride out of dappled shadows
Your carriage awaits

These large horses are truly beautiful beasts of burden. They sit patiently awaiting to give a smooth ride for the couple looking for that romantic city trip. Lovely as the wait under the cooling shadowy tree...

Dappled shadows on dappled horses. Lovely layers of texture and color.

Standing in the shadows they become dappled grays.

Not only do I love those shadows, but that pop of red on the horses's heads!

Great composition and subject - don't think I have ever seen two horses do this kind of job!
