Shadows Under the Eye

The Eye refers to a tree with an all-seeing eye, located in Queens Park, Invercargill. Under the eye, shadow patterns cast their lacy looks across the lawn. Southland, New Zealand. Most photos taken by Liz 02 March, unless otherwise stated.

This first image is cropped from a photo I took 02 Mar and posted in the recent Powerful Moment post. I approached the tree, looked up, and found it watching me! The uncropped version is at the end of this post for quick reference.

This is the first shadow photo that I took under the tree.. taken last year on a similarly bright day, 13 Nov 2018


The following photos were all taken under the eye tree by me on 02 March 2019


I fitted plenty of shadow detail into this vertical image


Native astelias and blue grasses planted around the base of the eye tree

  1. Lovely photos! So nice to see green when here we have so much gray. Today the sun is shining though and snow is melting! Hoorah! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
    I like how you found the โ€œeyeโ€ in the tree bark. I also like the patterns in the grass from the shade. ๐Ÿ’š
