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)

The old fish shed is now closed, but Hastings pier is still open for fishermen and wanderers.

delight of a pier
beckons a close encounter
with the sea

Really nice diagonal curving line, and a picturesque building. Beautifully captured - makes me want to walk into it.

This picture of the pier and the old fish shed has really captured my imagination. I can just picture myself there with my fishing pole.The clouds overhead are beautiful.

Wood lends itself so well to black & white - and there's nothing quite like a jetty to prompt the imagination!
