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)

First of the Month in Summer

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ For this new meme, I have decided to use this view (of Port Phillip Bay) from my verandah in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula.
There is always a variety of sea and sky moods through the seasons.
This particular photo captures the current early summer afternoon view.
Here is my First of the Month focus.
First of the Month #1

Bright light of summer
Cool sapphire skies and waters
A New Year begins

First of the Month is hosted by Jan @ Murrieta365

I can not imagine being to wake up and see this scene each morning of my life. Breath taking! Can't wait to see the rest of the year thru your lens.

I'd love to have tea on your verandah and enjoy this spectacular view. It will be very refreshing to enjoy your winter view when we're in the hot summer months.
