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)

In a Surreal World

Collage by Gemma Wiseman
It is an overlay of wild waters after storms at Anthony's Nose and very early morning dawn lights in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula
3WW CXLVI ~ gloom + kneel + transparent

Transparent dawn gloom
Galaxies of wild waters
Flushed timid lights kneel
