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)

I love seeing your summer photos while it's so dark and cold over here.... a wonderful shot!

A wonderful beach photo. It'd be easy to think of it as 2 photos in 1.

You know...this picture is a gift, as we have had such a severe winter and I'm really tired about all snow, I'm enchanted by your shot, thanks soooo much!
And have a great Sunday!

At first glance, I thought -mundane- (sorry). Then i actually looked at the image and it is full of multiple stories of life on a beach. Even an interaction of different stories on the beach. Very cool image. Thanks for sharing! Here is my entry.

Judging by their clothing and activities, it doesn't look terribly hot. Seems relaxing and fun.

Ahhhh... you've got me dreaming of summer. Great shot.

I love how beaches become little microcosms of life, places where entire stories play out, and none of them have anything to do with the pounding surf.

This shot rocks. I could stare at it for hours.
