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 ~ One of my front garden ornaments basking in a little summer afternoon sunlight
Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday #35

Dappled hints of light
Balanced wisps of fantasy
Almost a real deer

Boy I'm late getting to everyone, but Dad and I have been thawing out my frozen pipes...hence the poem. We've had record cold this year and arctic winds so the ground was frozen down 4 feet. No water or bathroom facilities...argh...but I love your little fawn hiding in the shadow, I've seen many like this on my walks in the meadows.

Have a wonderful week friend!

Frosty the was wind-chill of 32 below zero that day, I never wear a scarf over my face, but you couldn't breath...brrr...byebye...s

Sweet deer in the warmth-nice shadow he casts.

Hey Harriet said...

That's such a sweet shadow shot Gemma. I adore your little deer. Much more interesting than any ol' garden variey gnome ;)

Hot Fudge said...

I agree with Tracy - much more interesting than your usual garden gnome!

Chubby Chieque said...

You always amazes me with all your sweet garden ornaments.

So dramatic shot! Well, you always had.

Cheers for Sunday evening & a great week ahead.

Love the contrast of light and shadow. I think if the deer had no horns, she could easily be a cat basking in your garden.
