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)

Montalto vineyard at Red Hill features many sculptures scattered through the vineyard.

They find the beauty they seek--and you capture it!

It reminds me of the ribs and vertebrae of a deer skeleton we found in the woods, bleached and scattered. Interesting piece.

Artlover said...

Great contrast with this in the pictures..

Carver said...

Interesting sculpture and perfect in black and white.

Kicki said...

Interesting and in the same time a little bit strange!

Dragonstar said...

A fine photo Gemma. I like the stark white of the sculpture - but the more I look the more unsettling I find it. Maybe it's the bleached bone look that MyMaracas mentioned.

I´m not sure what to think about it. Nice shot, but for the sculpture.....

They may be discordant, but they have been turned into something beautiful. genie

Maybe it doesn't seem do dicordant after a glass of fine wine :-)

How fun! That's a great idea for a vineyard.
