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)

Feathered Shadow

A still life of wings
Feathers gather webs of time
Shadows of journeys

Shadow Shot Sunday 2

I love your feathery shadow shot, Gemma! Wonderful composition!! Hope your weekend is going well!

Ralph said...

The feather is not part of a flying avian - yet, the shadow allows us to feel the lift under the wing, each feather allowing the bird to climb higher. The shadow looks alive - very nice capture!

Gemma this is beautiful .. it makes me feel still inside as I look at it .. and think of the comment .. much like life of a human that eventually becomes very still but full of past adventures ?
Joy : )

As a Tablescaper, I am drooling with those feathers you have. How I wish I am just around your city so, I could grab some of those §;-)

Not just the feather who's inviting there. I can see the stand show it's lovely curve.

Happy SSS & w/end, Gem.

Greetings from a rainy Stockholm
