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)

Point Leo Shadows

Boundary fence line round a lookout at Point Leo overlooking Port Phillip Bay

Regular line marks
Like a shadowy ladder
Waiting for climbing

Based on Antonella's digi at Quilling, Art and Expression

Shadow Shot Sunday 2

a beautiful pattern.

Ralph said...

That is a beautifully built walkway of wood - with a sturdy railing to keep the sightseers from falling over - which is possible when getting lost in the wonderful scenery!

Sylvia K said...

Wonderful, crisp shadow shot for the day, Gemma!! Can almost feel the warm sun! Hope your weekend is going well!

And, will that climb lead to the peak of the ocean beyond? Love the patterns. You know me-a pattern 'hound'!

I love the your view overlooking the ocean. Ahh... Port Philip Bay. Been there several times.

You make me so drool of OZ. Soon, soon... I will be there too.

Happy SSS.
