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)

Weaving a magical scene
Like swimming in clouds

What a gorgeous reflection, Gemma!

And ... do you see the floating heart (near the bottom of the photo)? It's absolutely PERFECT!

I'm going to link this with Guest Heart Thursday, if you don't mind!

A reflection that really has heart, Gemma, if you'll forgive me for saying so.
I love the duck - she looks so serene.

That's really magical: the beautiful duck creating ripples in the sky reflecting water. And of course the cute floating heart :-)
