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)

It may be evening, not a time we associate with lighting - we assume there is none above. However, the sepia moon illumines that exists from space to earth. It offers an elegant brilliance. Wonderfully captured!
