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)

Great photos, and I would have liked to see it all with my own eyes ;-)

What a sight to see! Kites certainly have come a long way since I was a child. They take on so many different shapes and colours. Kite flying is one of our favourite pastimes in the summer.

Gemma...I know I have said it before, but your photography is absolutely the best. You alway use color which makes so many of your shots so appealing to me in particular. I love this flying thing mosaic. The section with the large vertical flags is fabulous. A great post...job well done! Thanks. Genie

Great to see you out and about enjoy the sunshine on the labour day weekend. We went lunching in the country and then tramping through the bush - isn't Australia the most wonderful place to live! It was great to visit your site - I'm going to add your link to my blog. Have a great day.
