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 Gemma; this marina picture sets one into a holiday mood. Picture perfect!

Beautiful; our favorite kind of place in the whole world (the small part we've seen and the wider one we know through blogland.) Thanks for sharing!

It's easy to imagine the clouds are only over the land and not over the water. Delightful shot. I do miss boats, and marinas, and the ocean, so I'm always happy when you and others post photos like this.

The clouds seem to be almost touching the water! Great shot! Our water here is just a wee bit chilly!
Hope you had a great New Year's!

The quintessential harbor - I immediately want to take one of the boats for a sail! But one question: are the clouds coming or going?

Ah - so wonderfully summery.

What a divine spot...would love to be there up close and personal right now instead of where I am! Beautiful capture and composition. Oh, how I have missed you and your beautifuul shots these past 6 weeks. Hopefully I am going to be able to manage my time better here in the new year. Happy New Year to you my friend. Genie
