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)

I love this colour orange. It's very warm and deep! Some of our trees are colouring orange or red now. It's beautiful! Thanks for visiting!

Gemma -- I'm jumping around your posts, trying to catch up (same old same old reason) -- I went from your B&W portrait directly to this beautiful yellow flower macro -- and just comparing the two side by side (almost) -- is such a stunning example of your talent. Incredible photos, both.

You have a sweet daughte.
