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)

Isn't it amazing how they take advantage of any water they can find!

Thanks for your comment Gemma, your scene also seems wonderful.
I hope you do well on the new meme nature. It is hard to start.
