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)

I can't imagine what kind of ride that would give, but it makes for a great photo!

I like this! It's almost surreal. We had the carnival in town a few weeks back, but I never had the chance to go explore.

That vehicle has so many different patterns on it, it's interesting without being a carnival ride! Add adrenaline, and it's really over the top! Really nice capture!

The opportunities you have for taking photographs are unbelievable. You never cease to amaze me with the beautiful shots you post for all of us to enjoy. This ship is quite a piece with all of it interesting decorations.
