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)

Gemma, very intriguing skies in your shots. I love the beach and the colored house... cabana huts...

Carletta said...

Beautiful skies!
The bluejay is a wonderful capture.
I enjoyed seeing those little buildings again - I would love to be there.

Pretty Life Online said...

Awesome catch! Great job... Hope you can visit my entry too... Happy SWF!

Greyscale Territory said...

Ummmm! Please note! The blue jay is the Blue Monday logo. It is a prompt site! That's why I placed it below the SkyWatch logo!

Leora said...

Lovely. Those are intense skies. Love how you have a similar setting twice, but different skies. And we aren't supposed to look at the blue jay? He's just a logo? He's awful cute.

babooshka said...

I wish we had these beach, they work so well against those skies drawing you thoguth the image.

John said...

Luiz Ramos said...

Beautiful seascape and nice cloud colors.
I like that bird.

Wren said...

Gray days can make interesting photos, can't they? I can imagine walking along that beach and feeling the wind.

Jeanne said...

I would love to go out on that pier and lean on the rail and just drink that view in.

Dromaa looks so peaceful and pretty. I think it's time I looked Dromana up to find out where it is in Australia!
Happy Sky Watch!

The blues in your sky are most varied and beautiful. Lovely.

Titania said...

Beautiful shots of a lovely area.
You caught that swath of blue, a little moody and lonesome; the colourful beach huts hinting at summer. I had a look at all the pictures; the restless sea; the fisher hoping for a good catch and the birds with a knowing look in their eyes...fantastic series of pictures.

SandyCarlson said...

These are wonderful skies. Thanks for bringing me there!

Catherine said...

I love your blue spring views. Blue color, and sea are so calming.
So lucky you are to enter in Spring season. I'd like to pass the 6 following months watching your bluer and bluer sky!

piedmontperspective said...

You did beach photos too! All of the photos are beautiful, Gemma. Love the perspectives on these but the last one with the pier is my favorite. Great captures!

Craver Vii said...

I like that last shot, as I can just imagine the feel of the wind, the smell in the air, and the sound of the waves.

chrome3d said...

I feel refreshed already like I have taken a walk on the beach.

Arija said...

In the long lost days of my youth I used to swim off Dromana in mid winter. I still don't know why I didn't die of pneumonia. Nice pics, and thanks for the memories.
