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)

Looks like peaches or apple. But what ever it is I love the photo. Thanks for sharing and Happy New year!

A great snap shot and catching of the moment. The fragile baby and the grandfather totally absorbed by picking the juiciest peach in the world.
The movements, the light, the intensity of the moment; you've got it all. Great.

That does look delightful - sharing the picking together. So nice to see the warmth when our part of the world is so cold.
