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)

close couple...


couple looking over Port Phillip Bay from Queenscliff Lighthouse Reserve...
I think the man is wearing the woman's hat,
because he gave it to her when they stood and walked away...


close together
sharing
special secrets
