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)

Now that blue color really catches the eye. It must be fun to ride around in that without having to worry about traffic!

That's a lovely blue capture!

Very nice. At first I thought the photo was a poster. There is something about it that makes it look like it is not the real thing. Kept me staring for a while.

"I gotta run, 'cause I hear it comin', I gotta jump that train. / I got tears in my eyes like fallin' rain, that's why I'm ridin' the blues train." ~ Foghat
What a great find and as always the Haiku is perfect melding of word with image.

A blue train makes for a colorful ride, I'm sure. Is today your first day of spring? It's our first day of fall (although here in Arizona we're still having some 100-degree days!)
