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)

Dark cobwebbed ancient treasures
Behind a red door

An interesting composition, I like it! My mind started telling stories of children being warned to stay away from the red cellar door and what their imaginations would tell them lies beyond it.

I think this is my favorite of your (always enjoyable) photo & haiku offerings. It really is a little story/world/adventure!
