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)

Love the light on the water. It's 100F here today and this looks so inviting.

I like the light and colours. Well composed.

Love the glistening water in comparison to the sand and sky. Great title as it looks like a slice between the building and whatever the other structure is.

Nice composition! There is something about keyhole views -- looking into another world and like a child wondering what's out there!

Judy said...

The water still looks so inviting, even if this is winter at the beach! I would love to be able to walk along the shore!

What a gorgeous photo! :)

I won't dare diving in that cold beach! Brrrr!

Wonderful picture. Could I borrow the cold for just one day? Hard to believe that it is over 30C in Europe.

Siromade said...

Very inviting water, but I wont be tempted it's chilly at the moment. Great photos.

Gemma I want to live there!

stan said...

Oh, I almost forgot that Australia's in the S hemisphere. I'd love some cold here in warm n humid asia.

I love how you framed this! I prefer winter views of the beach; they're just so much moodier! Beautiful glistening waters!
