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)

Cloud Surf

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Beautiful sky viewed across fields outside Boneo Maze and Wetlands, Mornington Peninsula
Sky Watch Friday #117

Like tumbling cloud waves
Like a grand movement forward
White surf in the sky

What gorgeous summer skies! Love the puffy clouds and blue skies over that very green field! As you can tell, I am missing the warmth and color of summer! Such a terrific capture as always, Gemma! Wishing you and Shadow and your family a very Merry and Joyful Christmas!
