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)

Sky Art

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ At this time in March 2010, the Autumn sky on the Mornington Peninsula was a canvas of unusual cloud patterns and colours.
This year it is just mainly a wash of grizzly grey.

I just love the way the cloud cover has that wonderful dip in it. This is a grand picture that has a magical surreal quality to it. Thanks for sharing it with us. Have a wonderful weekend full of wonderful picture taking.

Grey, but beautiful. The silver lifts it from dreary to dreamy!

If I could paint greys like that, I would be a master!


Which sky for you?
One that is blue?
Or do you prefer
A sky that’s demure?

A sky in grey
Is soft, they say,
And not everyone
Likes the blinding sun.

Perhaps a sky
Through which geese fly
To winter havens
Away from ravens?

A rain-swept sky
That seems to cry?
O quickly choose one
Before day is done!
