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)

Evening Sky

Sky Watch Friday #125

Late summer twilight
Like a fragile rainbow glow
Fading in splendour

Such a pretty moon against the lovely pastel sky.

A lovely gentle moonrise Gemma. I experienced a similar one at Moonta May a couple of days ago on our one day holiday.

I love the gentle subtleties of this evening sky!


Chicken Little thinks the sky
Will be falling bye and bye,
Crashing to the ground like sand
Scattered over sea and land.

What do silly chickens know?
Who told Chicken Little so?
She should get the story straight:
Sky’s not falling, it’ll wait!

Hi - I blog from just around the corner really. Think you may like some of my pictures - have a look at both blogs and I'm sure you'll find places you know.

I still find the size of the Australia sky remarkable - and I think your picture shows why.

Cheers Stewart M - Victoria.
