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)

Dear Gemma,
It is almost as if we were out for the same evening walk but just turned and clicked the shutter in different directions this week :-). Our trees here are a bit different, but the light behind the clouds and lines leaps through space from here to there. Have a lovely weekend!
