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)

Snowdrop Shadows

Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday prompt #24

Shadows of Springtime
White snowdrops cast dark bell shapes
Yin and yang is sweet

Amazing how large our world which we live on actually is. I know that you are experiencing spring but what a difference it makes for me to be able to see your spring through your shadow shots! Very cool.
