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)

Distant Westgate Bridge

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A distant view of the Westgate Bridge, Melbourne.
This perspective was taken from Brighton looking across Port Phillip Bay.
It was a sunny, but misty morning.
I was just glad to see some warm early Summer sun at last, even though it only lasted about one hour!
SOOC Sunday #108

An arcing feature
Like a bow across the bay
Misty dream magic
