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)

Beautiful. I'm so glad your dry continent is getting so much rain this spring and summer. How nice it would be if you had no drought this year.

I do so agree with EG about the rain and no drought!! Gorgeous skies and matching words as always, Gemma! Have a lovely evening and a beautiful tomorrow!

Good job on two rainbows! They can be harder to capture.

Lovely, and slight weird colours to the background sky of your rainbow - great shots!
