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)

Passing Thoughts #10 ~ My Blog Comments ~ December 2010

Sometimes greater powers know how to guide us into lives we should be living!
(in response to Mag 46 @ My Scattered Stones )

The prayer flags look like a bridge linking earth and spirit!
(in response to Sky Watch @ The Pagan's Eye) in Colorado

Wonderful series of photos capturing the rolling dark light in the sky!
(in response to Sky Watch @ Vermilion River)

This looks like an endless sky sculptured with railway tracks!
(in response to Sky Watch @ The Sky is Big in Pasadena)

The sky is studded with jewelled light and the water pulses with pillars of gold! It's magic!
(in response to Sky Watch @ Embracing who we are) in Montevideo, Uruguay

Spectacular tiers of light! Like a pack of gilt edged cards!
(in response to Sky Watch @ Bluff Area Daily)

Dave @ Sa Dilim posted the most magical sunrise I have ever seen!
Silhouette shapes give it extra, interesting drama.
The patterns of light are so magical! Brilliant! And love the touch of the silhouetted bird in flight and tall lamp posts! A very interesting scene!
It is called Urban Sunrise.

The most disturbing Winter post ~ @ Bland Rosor and Tistlar called I'm Free Again.
I have been prisoner in my own home for five days.
This is the coldest December in Sweden in 110 years
and I have never seen so deep and icy snow before.
The first plow stuck and broke down.
Today two new plows have been working all day
on our road (1100 meter down to the main road)
and finally it´s cleaned.
Of cause I had to drive down to the sea
with Miss Westie to feel the newfound freedom.
Next Tuesday are the trains projected to run
and I hope this winter will get back to normal.
My Comment: Disturbing to be a prisoner of Nature! Yet, you still post a beautiful photo of your snowy world! You have wonderful inner strength and spirit!

It is always good to hear of a birth.
Somehow a newborn brings a sense of optimism, hope and wonder when a New Year is nigh.
Esther Garvi in Niger proudly announced the birth of Zidane of Zinder to proud mare Ebony.
My Comment: Zidane is a beautiful little baby! He seems so content in his new world, willing to enjoy all the sights and sounds and scents!
