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)

Gemma...Put a long white habit on her, and she would look like one of the nuns that taught me in high school.I just love your capturing her in black and white. This week I really went out of my comfort zone and took a risk...a bit scary. Thanks for your kind words about my tractor wheel and hay truck. Hope you have a wonderful weekend in black and white.

Very interesting picture....she looks so angry, as if someone is trying to take her milk from her....

I don't know about the crows, but she'd easily scare me! The milk tipping from the bucket is a nice touch.
