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)

A Splash of Yellow on the Queenscliff to Sorrento Ferry

Pic By Gemma Wiseman ~ It's amazing how a single splash of yellow can stand out so much in a photo! I guess, having so much blue sky and blue water as a contrast helps!
This scene was taken on the Queenscliff to Sorrento ferry as it headed from the Mornington Peninsula across Port Phillip Bay toward Queenscliff, Bellarine Peninsula.
Mellow Yellow Monday #52

A splash of yellow
A little bow of sunlight
Arcing seas of blue

That's one way to get noticed: where yellow! It's not my color though. I look awful in it! Love the scene...very tranquil looking and I like how you captured the person as she's (he?) looking off into the distance.
