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)

Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog, and I hope it was a good cord after seeing Checkpoint Charlie, which I learned so much more about in later years. Your TP photo is beautiful, it makes you stop and think about how they were created so perfectly in color and design...thanks for sharing! Karen Sather email:

Great capture! The tail pattern is quite interesting too.

The lighting and texture are surreally beautiful. It's the kind of photo that invites you back again and again because you always see something new.

This is why I love photography: Because you never stop experiencing new things, courtesy of some really creative folks. Glad we've crossed bloggy paths!

That is beautiful == a perfect study for b&w; wonderful photography. (I thought when I saw the title that I might be disappointed in not seeing more of that adorable bird, which you introduced me to). But the picture is just heavenly.
