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)

Ragged Reflections

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A quiet area (late Winter 2010) opposite the Treasury Building, inner Melbourne

Weekend Reflections #75

Trembling reflections
As if Nature cringed with cold
Urban grey beauty

It's always fun to take a pic of someone else who's taking pics, isn't it? Enjoy your weekend, Gemma!
