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)

A Few Shadows, A Few White Feathers

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ White feathers and shadows on my back verandah in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula
Shadow Shot Sunday #56

Cold morning shadows
Labyrinth of shade and light
Some white travellers

Such beauty to be surrounded with every morning, even on cool days, the company seems never ending...bonds forming perhaps. They know where friend dwell and will frequent as long as the mood is loving...can you imagine not being in love with nature...

I'm late to work, but had to stop by before I ventured into the cold damp freeways of my Saturday...have a wonderful Sunday Gemma, g'day to your feathered friends!


Sylvia K said...

Oh, what a fabulous shot! I love the birds! Amazing! Happy SSS!

Have a great weekend!

Jacqui said...

How wonderful to be visited by such creatures - they look so magical.

Evette Mendisabal said...

That is incredible. I can't get over how many cockatoo's are sitting there. Do they stay for long?

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

Great picture Gemma! I can't even imagine being greeted by all of those cockatoos - unless I was in the zoo!! (but then again, three kids do make me feel like I live in the zoo now that school is out!)
Enjoy your week!

Hey Harriet said...

That amazes me that you have so many cockatoos hanging out on your verandah Gemma! I love the one that you've captured in flight! For a chilly morning the birdies all look snug and happy basking in the sun :)

If I ever had those birds around..I wouldn't know what to do.
They are beautiful. What great pictures you took..Happy SSS..

Linda said...

Great picture capturing that bird in flight along with the porch shadows

srp said...

Wow! Love the contrast... so do these feathers fly north for the winter? Or do they stay around all year? Thanks for stopping by.

Wonderful shadowy action shot for today ... just beautiful ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Raven said...

LOTS of white feathers... and lovely shadows. Love the bird in flight. So wonderful to catch him/her with wings spread full like that. Lovely.
