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)

Shadowy Reflections

Leaves of yesterday
Reflections and shadows meet
Last sighs of Autumn

Linking to:
Shadow Shot Sunday 2

Great shadow shots for the day! Love the colorful leaves, Gemma! I still have a hard time thinking of June as autumn, but just one more interesting difference in our worlds! Have a beautiful weekend!

I love the whole feel of this one. It's so different from the usual, sunny shots we see.

I like the contrast between the silvery wood and the vibrant colours of the leaves

Gemma, I love these pictures....who needs sunshine for some fantastic shadows?! We can almost hear the pitter-pat of the rain :) Enjoy your weekend!

beautiful leaves, nearly perfect shapes

Catherine said...

beautiful colours on these leaves - quite lovely

I forgot that you are heading for winter, hence the ruby fallen leaves. They may not be on a tree any more, but their well-defined shape still adds an artistic flair as they lie on the wood deck. Not somber, but the beauty of nature all around us, both up and down...

A reminder for me that summer here is fall there. Well, I guess, technically, it is still spring here.
Beautiful shots!

I, too, have a hard time thinking of June as Autumn, but there you go, some things are just different!
