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)

Shadow Mime

Shadows playing on the wall and door of a boatshed at Dromana beach

Eerie shadow mime
So many shapes are players
Like a last tableau

The greenery almost seems incongruent with the sand of the beach. I wasn't expecting that! Lovely, soft shadows and I like the delicate line of the roof shadow.

Soft, beautiful, mysterious shadow shot for the day, Gemma, and the perfect words as always! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

Chubby Chieque said...

So, how's the weather in Dromana? Raining again?

But still warm though? I love the sand & the sun. Now, you make me drool the sunny day.

Stockholm is cloudy and windy=chilly. I need a warmer place. Hope it's warm in Berlin coz am going in a week time.

Planned for Melbourne this coming Christmas. So, maybe a cuppa somewhere?

Happy SSS, Mother Meme?

The boathouse looks so well kept from the outside. (I bet the boat that is inside is really nice.) Noticed there are THREE locks on the door. Perhaps because it sits in the shadows?? Happy SSS.

This is so calm and peaceful, for once I wouldn't mind getting sand between my toes, if I could visit there!!

A building that is plain and functional may not have a lot of style (perhaps none) in and of itself. Add some shadows, and we see a masterpiece!

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Yes, they play for just a while...and then they go...

Such a pretty image...dancing shadows. It is interesting how they go down the side of the building and onto the front stoop. You hit the sun at the perfect moment. Nice capture. genie

The shadow makes a beautiful accent to the wall.

toby said...

they're lovely shadows, but I'm so curious - are all those locks to keep something in, or to keep something out?

Costin Comba said...

Is anyone here? Lovely shadows
