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)

First of the Month in February

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ February opened with some very strange evening skies hanging round Port Phillip Bay.
Perhaps Cyclone Yasi imminent in Queensland to our north is sending weird skies our way!
Once again, this is my view from my verandah in the Dromana Hills!
First of the Month #2

Eerie evening skies
Like daylight challenging night
Clouds whisked by winds

First of the Month is hosted by Jan @ Murrieta365

What a fortunate view you have Jemma! This photo is stunning with the sky all rosy, water and twinkling lights. Stay safe from the storm. Hae several friends in Australia that I'm thinking about now.

Jan said...

Great photo of your view. The approaching storm sounds horrible, I think you are out of harms way, be safe.

Hi Jemma,
Ominous looking clouds, but they are a beautiful color. Stay safe. Have a great day!

The sky does look a little stormy, those clouds have a pretty pick hue to them. Hope your out of harms way from the cyclone predicted there.

An awesome sky and since living in the metropolis without a view, appreciate skyscapes even more. Did I read there is yet another cyclone on the way?
Thanks Gemma for stopping by my blog,
