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)

A Drop of Red

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Even on cool summer days, there is always someone drawn to the magic of sea and sand and sky!
And a red beach umbrella on Dromana beach looks like a glowing light!

Cool summer beach scenes
Like gentle drifting magic
Strange quiet spaces

Great shot - that red umbrella really stands out and turns a good image into something special...!!

A beautiful drop of red. Your beach pictures are always lovely -- like you, when we go to the beach I'm much more likely to be on the other end of the camera instead of being the subject. But my pictures never turn out as well.

Wonderful composition of all the elements!
I sure would like a sandy beach instead of the snow covered ground out my window at present. :)

That red really pops against all the blue. Nice catch.
