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)

Really intriguing shot!

Breathtaking shot and such a strong force of being!

You've managed to raise high art that much higher with this shot. One of the things I love about sepia is its ability to render textures, and this picture is Exhibit A.

The mind boggles at the artistic genius that results in work like this. To do it such justice through your lens is a gift, too.



A place of beauty in the Western Tiers
