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)

I love this shot. It shows so much in monochrome of the center of the poppy.

The shaded centre and the light behind the petals make such a lovely photo.

What a gorgeous macro! I had no idea the unassuming little poppy was such a secret beauty!

And I love your haiku - especially "worlds of small wonders" - so true.
