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)

stan said...

it takes so much patience to fish. I doubt I can sit still for long. :P

Ralph said...

This guy in red seems so relaxed, perhaps catching fish is secondary to the quiet and solitude...

Felisol said...

Is he fishing with two rods?
Not so relaxed as he looks,maybe?

Else he sees to have all the patience and tie of the world.

Like a day on a quiet beach is to e.
I cannot be of any use or fulfill any obligations, so I can allow myself to have a good time.

Hopefully there will so be warm enough to take a day off, just enjoying being alive.

Now that looks like someone who is perfectly contented. Simple pleasures...:)

A little burst of red on a grey day.

He must really like to fish. He looks like he is all set up for Ruby Tuesday, with the red box and jacket.

Fisherman...what fish is he catching? he simply sits as if just relaxing...

Spadoman said...

Just got back from the big lake myself. We were swimming, but we talked about fishing next time we go up there. This photo seals the deal.
