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)

Wild Seas From a Distance

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ From my verandah in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula, a zoom of recent stormy seas on Port Phillip Bay.

Undulating seas
Wild winds whiten peaks of waves
Like streaks of madness

That's a cool shot. The whitecaps almost look like clouds in the sky. If it wasn't for the pier I would almost think it was the sky.

Wow! You can see the ocean from your home? NICE!

I love a walk by a stormy sea, but what is better, to be able to watch it from your veranda.

You must be up on a hill overlooking the water...what a great spot to shoot from. This shot is great...I love the way you captured the movement of the rough sea. It is the perfect blend of black and white. Great job.

The sea looks so wavy. It's a great view from your verandah :)

I've always loved looking at rough seas on a bright day. I'm sure your verandah gets windy at times!

Very nice monochrome. I love the action in the sea.


Love those days! But where are you?!!
