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)

That was a very dramatic-looking dawn! I'm thinking the rest of the day may have been a bit stormy...but the morning light was gorgeous!

Oh what a beautiful morning! I don't know which I like more, the clouds or the trees, but the whole scene does look like a theater.
