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)

Desperately Seeking Yellow!

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ When the rain doesn't stop long enough to go walking for photos, what to do?
Sit in the Dromana carpark and look around!
A tree with a yellow surround!
And behold, when I uploaded the photo, I saw a convenient splash of yellow in the background on the gutter!
Mellow Yellow Monday #96

Sunny glowing tone
Yellow lives in strange places
Even when it rains
(NOTE: Desperate haiku too!)

Incredible to open the senses and broaden horizons. What a wonderful idea to encourage readers to raise awareness of colors and other things right in front of them. Peace to you.

Well done, getting the yellow shot like that even when the weather is bad. Fun take on the theme.

Who but you would think to sit in the car park and look around? A car park isn't a place to BE, it's a place for your car to be, and for you to leave as soon as possible. But to look around for photo ops - for yellow photo ops - just wonderful!!

What vibrant yellow you found! A great shot!

I love this b/c it is such a vibrant yellow. But mostly because of the title -- and the fact that it points out so well what every meme I ever enter has done for me -- it teaches me to seek (even if it is sometimes desperately!) . Love it!

You've surely figured out that I am very far behind in catching up with my favorite blogging people.
It's like Christmas when I get back! So many beautiful pictures.
