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)

Blossoming Shadows

Shadow Shot Sunday prompt #10
Like filmy poses
Like frozen gestures in space
Odd identities

Dark glows
Like fiery night lights
Like warm rays in loneliness
Blossoming shadows

Nice shadow shots, great description of both! The second shot has several different colors going on at the same time...I love how that looks! :D

Must be eucalyptus trees, they give such a misty shadow, pale warm green-gray leaves, like shadows of themselves.
