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)

Cloud Art

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A section of the Nepean Highway that curves around Anthony's Nose by Port Phillip Bay, Mornington Peninsula.
A popular boat launching ramp is here - hence the trailers lined up on the left of the photo.
And I love the dramatic cloud formations hanging like some alien space craft over the roadway.

White clouds like alien art

This would be a very interesting shot at any time, but those wonderful clouds take it to another dimension. It's almost as if the clouds are more real than the land.

Beautiful way of capturing the mood.

I love the clouds...they almost seem like they are moving in circle though I know they are still.
