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)

Wine Glass Shadows

My very large wine glass capturing the summer sun's rays.
(I usually use it as an ornament!)

Just a plain wine glass
Filling the shape of cupped hands
Gold shining in gold

There's something about wine glass shadows that are magical to me. I just love them. This one is especially nice because of the color of the glass. Such a pretty capture. genie

The golden nectar is a treat of nature, the shadow below as brilliant as the solar orb in the sky. A goblet of gold...

I love your colorful shadow shot for the day, Gemma! Such beautiful, warm colors, too!! Hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend!

Gorgeous picture. We once had a friend whose doctor told her to cut back on wine and to only drink one glass a day. She bought a glass the size of this one. (True story, seriously.)

glorious golden shadows!

Norma Ruttan said...

stunning! do people actually drink out of a glass this huge? I'd be passed out on the floor!

Margaret Gosden said...

Looks like it might be brandy in a bowl like that - lovely color and illusion of candlelight either behind or in it.

Leovi said...

Beautiful photo, beautiful words. I have a taste for a glass of wine right now! (It's barely after 6 AM here in Wisconsin) By the way, Wisconsin is known for beer!

this shadow is gorgeous. And the reflections too. I love shots like this.

Paula Scott said...

Hardly plain! Love the color and shapes that it cast as a shadow and reflection.
