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)

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Delightful, shadowed bend in Arthurs Seat Road, Mornington Peninsula ~ I lightly tinted the background so that the foreground of shadows becomes the dominant feature in the pic. This is a filtered black and white image.
Shadow Shot Sunday ~ #8

A road dappled in sunlight
Is like a journey
Flecked with hope
Like many doors
