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)

Sand Shadows

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Shadows in the sand at Point Leo
Hey Harriet Shadow Shot Sunday #7

Just a tiny piece
Of young foliage
Lost in the real world
Of many leaves and
Big branches and
Big trees ~
But when cast
In shadow
On pale sands
The small becomes
An item
A unique artwork

Lovely delicate shadow image Gemma.

Hey Harriet said...

Oh Gemma, this is a beautiful beach shadow shot. Very sweet!

I live near the beach too. Yay! Here in Oz, I guess most of us live not too far from a beach :)
