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)

A fine abstract! Great shapes. said...

The bare branches of the tree add some softness to the sharp lines of the ( not very pretty) building.

Is that a cell-phone tower? I have such mixed feelings about those.... they are intruders on the landscape, but on the other hand I'd hate to live without mine (I'm not on it all the time like some people, but because we travel I really do need it to keep in touch.)

interesting mix with soft and hard lines enhanced by the black and white treatment. :)

Something hard and something soft - pick your choice.

Lots of shadowy tree tentacles. I really like your header. It seems to show the complexity of fairness/justice.

Great shot. I love the contrast between the tree and the buildings.
