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)

Moody Winter Sunset

Moody sunset tones
Like powdered winter colours
Mystic close of day

I love your haiku -- "powdered winter colours" is a gorgeous image, and the picture fits so well.

You mentioned on 3WW that you had trouble getting to my blog, and then commenting once you were able to get there. To help me troubleshoot, would you mind telling me what browser you use? If it's Internet Explorer (I use Firefox and/or Google Chrome), that might be the problem because I use Linux and not Windows and have no way to test a theme in Internet Explorer.

Thanks so much -- please respond here if you like, to make things easier on you. :)

Your words complete the picture, Gemma! I, too, love the phrase "powdered winter colors"! Perfect! Definitely a wintry looking sky and the bare trees silhouetted against the sky is the perfect touch! Enjoy your weekend!

To Thomma Lyn ~ Thank you so much for responding to me! Yes! I use Internet Explorer! Once again, I have tried getting to your blog but all freezes! What I find strange is that I travel to many blogs and the only difficult ones are those that have heaps of photos which take a long time to load! Sorry to cause trouble, but I did want you to know that I tried to visit!
