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)

Rocky Rhythms

Collage by Gemma Wiseman ~ Mossy and "sponge-like" rocks edging my garden in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula.
In the middle of the collage are "treasured" rocks that have travelled with me for many years.
PhotoHunt #171 ~ Rock/s

Nature's foundations
Rock the rhythms of my soul
Natural textures

Pics by Gemma Wiseman ~ This rock's colours have always fascinated me.

You have a nice rock garden Gemma. I love picking up rocks from places I've visited. I have a small, but growing collection. Nice pic. Hope all is well.

Those last two rocks are really interesting, Gemma. Some kind of quartz? with other minerals? Very very cool!

Thanks for visiting - hope you're having a rockin' weekend! :-)
