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)

Whispers of Morning

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Scenic lighting round Dromana pier, Mornington Peninsula
Scenic Sunday #118
Haiku Heights #13 ~ Serenity ~ suggested by Lynette Killam of The Imaginative Traveler

Subdued morning light
Glittering gentle waters
Whispering moment
Nature's magic calms
Fragile soul at peace
Serenity's gift
