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)

I find great beauty in this shot and the monochrome gives it strength. This would also be good for Weekend Reflections :-)

Very festive and the composition is perfect. I think wine glasses are very beautiful.

Deceptively simple. I like it.

A very elegant and clean lined photo. Simply beautiful!

Your glass photography is perfect, and the good part is that you can have your photograph and drink the wine too!
