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)

Like Chilled Heaven

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Buy my art
Yesterday, a glass of chilled wine on a 43 degree celsius day created a lovely play of light in the afternoon sunlight

Wine for the spirit
Heavenly chills in a glass
Red passion on ice

That's pretty, Gemma! 43 is hot! Mrs. Jim and I have been thinking of Australia for visiting, I think we missed it this year.
You are a good photographer to catch that one. I wouldn't know how and my camera probably isn't good enough.
Like your haiku too!
Happy RT!

The liquid in your wine looks like a piece of art. Love all that sparkly light. I'm sure it was refreshing, too.
