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)

Creeping Night Shadows

In the night shadows
Familiar old shapes transform
New kind of breathing

The available light, no matter how faint, allow for little shadows. They may not be a big as in the daylight, but their effect is magnified even more at dusk. The little light in the evening is quite welcome to the night traveller!

Gemma, I really like these night shadows. Eerie, yet somehow soothing. Nice!

There is a feeling of comfort in it.

It looks scary but the ambiance of coziness in the patio rules.

Hugs from a chilly Stockholm,

Very unusual shadow shot! Almost black and white except for the understated lighted window.

Beautifully captured Gemma. If reminds me of an our-ot-body experience I had where I was in a warm, comforting shadowland.

Gemma ! I love this photograph of your night on the deck .. everything does have a life of it's own at this time of our 24 hours .. all you needed was a full moon and a wolf howling in that back ground ? LOL
Joy : )
