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)

You really captured the modern face of the railway in that Haiku. Loved it.

So sorry you are having problems with linking. Thanks for letting me know and hanging in there. I will send a question to the host linky company. I am able to link you without a problem. One thing you might (?) want to try is clearing your cache? That would just be a shot in the dark - but maybe it would work.

I love all the lines and angles and space in this shot!

If you participate in the meme next week, and of course I hope you do, try not using your right click to paste your link and use 'ctrl' and 'V' instead. That should solve the problem. (Assuming you are using a PC?)
