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)

Beauty of a Grey Sky

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Distant wild cockatoos on a grey Autumn Sunday in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula.
(NOTE: I decided to post a moody scene for a change, in the hope it enourages more rain we desperately need!
At this moment, pumps are on standby to pump out the low levels of water in the Thompson Dam which services the Melbourne metro.
Hopefully, those grey skies really are rainy skies!
A glorious scenic Sunday indeed!)

Mysterious - or is that misterious?
I should do Scenic, I think - Lee seems out of it.

Oh...I hope you get lots of rain...Terrific shot of the birds. They too seem to be calling out to the skies for rain!

Mirage said...

The blur adds subtlety to this, beautiful!

Scenic, indeed w/ the cockatoos - love the soft look!

Karen said...

Very artistic shot! The birds look barely there, but add so much to the photo. Hope you get that rain you need.
