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)

Nice one, Gemma! This sky has the feeling of depth, like I'm looking far off into the distance. I think it might be the bird that's making me feel that way.

So beautiful, Gemma. It reminds me of the song
"Morning has broken, like the first morning,
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird."
