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)

Palm Shadows

Palm tree shadow on the wall of shops in the main street of Dromana.
This area is the coastal hub of eating delights overlooking Dromana beach.
It is a crammed spot in the summer months.

Just a lone palm tree
Jostling for identity
In a shop lined street

I always love palm tree shadows!! They somehow look so happy reaching for the sky! Delightful capture as always, Gemma!! Have a lovely and very Happy Easter weekend!

Fish, chips and kabobs - the three food groups of Summer! What a delightful place, although all the horde of beach goers might make it crowded in season. But much lighter in the off-season. Delicious shadows!

I don't know what it is about palm shadows; they always look menacing to me, somehow. LOL

That palm tree does have quite a bit of competition, doesn't it? Nice catch!

The palm tree seems perfect for the Easter weekend.

I love how the shadow of the leaves kind of placed inside the circle.
