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)

Dark Spaces

Deep morning shadows on my home wall near the front entrance.

A cloak of shadows
The art of weaving dark space
A patch of sunlight

Hosted by Tracy @ Hey Harriet

Oh, what a wonderful, mysterious shadow shot for the day, Gemma! I love it and I love the deep green color! Beautiful! Hope your weekend is going well. Enjoy!

A great fusion of haiku and image, Gemma.

The wall is dark, looking more as if it is the inside of a cellar. Happily, the plants and glimpse of sunlight means we are outdoors, and it is day. The dark and light add a lovely contrast here!

Great capture, I love the shadows on the dark of the brick, with the green giving a splash of colour.

I like the almost-spooky atmosphere here. It makes me appreciate the patch of sunlight!

Nice contrasts with the bright green leaves offering a change of pace.

Thanks for visiting me today ~

Even in dark shadows there is still light and life. The green leaf gives it just the right touch.

Your Haiku describes this photo so well! I like the "cloak" of shadows.
