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)

I LOVE your sepia scenes! They are so peaceful!

Indeed me there is nothing more comforting that the sounds and smells of the sea...not to mention that wonderful view you have!

I walked out on my porch last night just to listen to the sounds of the silence, the smell...nothing but cold emptyness...a quiet beauty we endure once a year...I think I'll hunker down today with many cups of coffee and let the winds finish their soft, white sculptures in my drive.

At least we're on the downhill side...enjoy your beverage and the sunburn...I'll be thinkin' of ya in your turn in the sun.

I love water pictures done with sepia. They just take on a whole different feel.
