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)

Lively Spring Waters

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ The waters are roughly tumbling on to Dromana beach, Mornington Peninsula to herald the beginning of Spring!
Watery Wednesday #103

Rolling and churning
Like energy awakened
Happy dance of Spring

This is a beautiful photo Gemma. Those waves are heralding spring which I am sure you are looking forward to just as we do over on our side of the world.

Isn't it great to have winter out of the way and now you start spring. We have a long wait for that. Great photo.
