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)

Small Light

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Just dreaming on my verandah, Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula
Sepia Scenes #25

Even in small light
There is always space to see
Big lights far away

The bird silhouette makes this just perfect.

Looks like you have a lovely view of the water from your veranda. The bird must be quite tame to let you snap it's photo there.

Thom said...

Awesome photo.

ROSIDAH said...

A very inspiring sepia entry! I love the photo and your words of wisdom :)

dot said...

Wow, that's a dream shot to me! A+.

Ralph said...

That bird looks contemplative, as if he is wondering what life there just might be on the far horizon. Or not...the monochrome view looks elegant, with the clouds in unique formations. The sepia adds to this evocative view.

Deb said...

Lovely dream like sepia shot, clouds are great.

Sweet Repose said...

Yes it is a dream indeed. You are so lucky to have such a view and to see it with your romantic eyes, makes the journey even better for us.

Something about the allure of the sea, even in hurricane it is raw beauty at it's best...and your little feathered friends are sure to make your heart sing with the love of nature you have, to share a moment in time in just being.

Iowa has just been put on the map by being the first state to allow same sex marriage...maybe some of us are finally growing up in these times of cruel inequality. KUDOS Iowa courts!

That was the cutest Yorkie puppy I just groomed, you would have died laughing at him! What a hoot!

Hugs friend!
