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.
SkyWatch Friday #107

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