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)

Hi there! Came across your blog a while ago, and have really enjoyed it!

I'm a poet and at wordpress.com and wonder if, should the appropriate inspiration strike, I could use one of your photographs?

It would just be for my poetry blog http://kolembo.wordpress.com and of course I would credit and link to your site.

Please let me know.

I have, for now, posted on my diary blog (wordpress is doing a postaday2011 challenge thing) using a photo of yours of a tree that has a human face cut into it. It's mesmerising.

Still the initial request is for my poetry blog.

OK, thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you.
