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)

Sky Rails

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ I could not believe that I managed to see (and capture) this in the late afternoon clear sky after a rainy morning in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula
SOOC Sunday #107

Like parallel lines
Like a tiny sailing toy
Like signs in the sky
