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)

What a great picture…who is observing whom?

Christian Weiß said...

Friends? I do not know the birds, they look like crows, who must have more fear?

Artlover said...

good composition and nice B & W too.

I agree with Christian -- the cat probably has more to fear than the crows (I even did a post to that effect not to long ago)!

Makes me smile :)

Dragonstar said...

What fun! The cat seems completely unconcerned, but maybe the birds are keeping a close eye ;)
I love your title!

Norma Ruttan said...

inquiring minds want to know, who's the king of the mountain here? (or fence, if one must be accurate)
love the b&w because textures seem to be accented!
