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)

Tranquil, and warm! (That is important as we are well below freezing today) I love the line of the contrail!

I'm way behind this week, sorry. The line of clouds looks cool contrasting against the horizon. Great blues!

A gentle and soothing scene, Gemma, in contrast to the storm presently building up outside my house! And as always, a priceless haiku to accompany it...I love 'hopeful dreams set sail'...words as tranquil as the photo...:)
