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)

Calm for the spirit

That's such a peaceful scene. It must be unusual to have such an empty beach.

Neat, I like the "boulder border"! I'm hoping for an island trip this summer!

This is a strikingly serene and romantic scene which lends itself beautifully to monochrome. Like the big rocks in the foreground. Nice photography.
