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)

Weekend Reflections #77

Rippling reflections
Like crepe-textured silken waters
Nature's soft mirror

Great reflection for the day, Gemma! Always love boats and water! Hope you don't have any problems come your way from the earthquake and tsunami. We've even had warnings here on the coast of Washington. About the most widespread I've ever seen before!

There must be a little probleme : I can't see your shot ! I can read the post, but there is no picture here... :/

I'll try later : perhaps it is a temporary technical problem.

The boat sure looks inviting. I feel like I could climb aboard and go for a ride. :)

Genie said...

Quite a cool shot. The boat looks like it could be the white leather front seat of a classy convertible. Love the reflections. Nice work this week.

Oh, how I want to be in that boat! Your photo makes me feel I could step right in.
I love reflections in water. I think they're my favourite.
