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)

They do make for lovely photos, but I really don't want to step on one, especially if he's minus a shell. :)

Gemma -- that's lovely in all the detail. One of my goals when we get home from this roadtrip is to try to learn to take good macro shots.

I love celebrating the beauty in the smallest things. You do a great job. I have a lot to try to live up to!
