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)

Eerie Morning Sky

Eerie morning sky
Like grey colours on the wind
And a rash pink streak

OOOOH! It IS eerie, Gemma! But I like the colour under the clouds, trying to get through.

Sylvia K said...

This is one beautiful and thrilling sunrise, Gemma. The way the color of the sun is peeking through is so striking.

Oh, eerie... no, I didn't find it eerie in the least. I love the grey clouds with pink on their undersides, and I just know they'll turn white when the sun is a tiny bit higher.
Beautiful shot, Gemma.

I really love your sky shot, Gemma! Most of us don't see the sky just before sunrise, I think. It's got something spooky ...
Now there's one question remaining: did you get out of your warm bed this early? Or did you go to bed that late ...? ;-)
