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)

Mystery Shadows

A home at Safety Beach casts bold diagonal shadows.
It is almost like extra art on the facade.
What I don't quite understand is what creates the shadows.
It's only a narrow space between the wall and this wooden panel.
Why would there be cross panels?

stark diagonals
boldly paint their art on light
shadow mystery

That is a great shadow shot and it does look like a mystery to me as well. Those shadows are so symmetrical and a well taken photo. Also love your haiku :)
