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)

This is SO cool! Very nicely done.

WOW! This tree sculpture is awesome. Each you post something about Arthur’s Seat I remember walking Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh. I never stopped to think there were more than one of them. Your capture is great. The eyes are so intense, and the grin on his face is a bit spooky. I wonder what he is thinking.
