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)

Yes, this is stunning. I hope you got to sit and enjoy this spot for a while. I have a three year old usually with me and such relaxation is not possible yet. Your words of poetry fit this scene well.

Wow! This is just gorgeous Gemma! What a wonderful place it would be to just sit for awhile with a book (or a camera!!!).

Thank you so much for sharing this at The Creative Exchange this week.

Have a wonderful day!
