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)

Summer Lights

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ I was taking a shot of this pedestal of flowers at Ashcombe Maze, Arthurs Seat, Mornington Peninsula.
Just as I clicked, the little girl passed by.
When I uploaded the photo, I found that the flowers were dazzled with too much light and the little girl was in clear focus.
Quite strange!
SOOC Sunday #112

Flowers flooded with summer
A child in clear light
