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 is Fading


Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Shadows are lengthening and cool air is strengthening.
The tourists have returned home.
But still there are some who enjoy the last days of summer at Dromana beach, Mornington Peninsula

SOOC Sunday #118

Small summer season
Heat fragmented with cool air
Soft sunlight moments
