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 yellows! Cycling is popular in my area too. I like to see people outside exercising. Have a great day!

I love riding my bike, though it's getting a bit cold here for that.
Great capture Gemma.

This photo makes me want to ride my bike, but alas, we are in a blizzard and have a couple feet of snow!! Next summer for me. Great shot.

I LIVE riding my bike! I fell in mid-October and have not been able to ride my bike since. I miss it!

LOL! I meant "LOVE" not "live." but I guess live works anyway.

That's a really good, uncluttered shot. I tried to photograph a cool dude on a bike in downtown Boston once and there was so much stuff and people in the way. Good thing the dude had spiky, bright red hair to identify him as the subject! :-D
