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)

Foamy powder puffs
Drifting ocean of white clouds
Like light on the winds

Such gorgeous clouds/skies, Gemma! And what a terrific capture! The skies somehow look as though they go on forever and, in reality, I guess they do, but you've captured them perfectly! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and wishing you and very Happy, Wonderful New Year!!
