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)

Soft Reflection

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Even in the cooler months, seagulls seem to enjoy swimming around by Dromana beach, Port Phillip Bay.
Pale sunlight creates a soft reflection.
Weekend Reflections #76

In the cool seasons
Soft grey simpering waters
Ghostly reflection

What a pretty gull, so bright-white and dainty. City seagulls are so often scruffy, untidy and ungainly. This unhurried beach gull is a delight, with that soft reflection you mentioned.

You are right! The cold seems to have very little impact on gulls.
Nice photo!
