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)

Dromana is a popular seaside destination by Port Phillip Bay.

Flags are wonderful fluttering in the breeze. I particularly like the second one - there's a touch of whimsy about it.

Very colorful. Great shot of the first one: you managed to catch all the wording in movement.
