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)

Thanks for the reminder that spring is somewhere, even if definitely not here. So green and peaceful.

Wow! So much greenery! Very nicely captured especially with that awesome piece of water. Right now we're headed into autumn...yellow and red leaves, brown hills, soft breezes and shorter days. Enjoy!
