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)

Natural Attractions

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ For me, it is natural to be drawn to the character, colours, textures and moods of water.
I especially love the early morning sea mists and the blur of dawning light.
If I wish to relax and refresh, I am naturally drawn to the sea.
Fortunately, on the Mornington Peninsula, I am surrounded by the waters of Port Phillip Bay on one side and the Westernport Bay waters on the other.
I have views of Port Phillip from my verandah.
This photo is taken early morning at Balnarring beach on Westernport Bay, when horses love to exercise along the shores.

Lovely, peaceful photo. I love looking at water, although I don't really like being in it!

Namaste! Love this peaceful, beautiful shot. Makes me miss the ocean though. I'm not sure it is natural to live in the middle of a continent.

The photograph captures the natural beauty of the morning so well. Looks like a great place to ride horses too.
