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)

Grounded in the Sky


Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Sometimes, in the Spring, Dromana Hills on the Mornington Peninsula, we are visited by curious seagulls wanting to see what's beyond the beach world.

Churning fluffy clouds
White feathers glow on canvas
Potrait in the sky
