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)

Touch of shadow links
Keeping connected with earth
Basking in sunlight

I love how the shadow stretches widely across the post.

That chain has the look of solidity that only iron can provide. Thus, careless walkers on the pier can be a bit safer with the stout chain protecting us from the cold water below. A neat view of artistry and engineering!

Beautiful image and beautiful words to go with it-I need not ask for anything more (well, a glass of wine, perhaps!).

Leah said...

Love this fat and serene chain shadow you captured.
Well done.
