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)

Watery Wednesday #118

Gull resting on sands
Lost in a personal world
Other worlds roll on

'He' reminds me of an old man sitting in the sun and enjoying sea air - whats the betting he's enjoying the drier weather than what we've had recently.

Sunning itself by the sea ... just great.

Looks like he is just catching some rays. Great shot with the waves in the background.

Ah, such a peaceful life. :)

Karen said...

Excellent wave capture. I think the gull is daydreaming.

The wave behind the sea gull is gorgeous!
