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)

Reflections and Riders

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Riders at Balnarring Beach on Westernport Bay, early Good Friday morning
Watery Wednesday #31

Water reflections
Race horses ambling the waves
Beautiful landscape



Nice photo! Looks like the same grey day we have in Oslo - but then, grey days can give great reflections in the water! Beautiful horses!

Neat pictures. Reminds me when I was in Sri Lanka. We rode on the beach then too. Unfortunately I am not much of a horseman, but I do enjoy seeing them along with the occasional ride.

Great shot. I always thought it looked so romantic to see riders and horses riding along the beach...but they look cold, not romantic. :-)

One of those photos that you just have to be there at the right time - and with your camera.

Beautiful shots.
