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)

WOW!!! This is great. I have seen lots of seagulls in my day, but none beautiful like this one. He is gorgeous and looks like he means business. Love the difference between the colors of the seagull and the one of his reflection. Your photography is magnificent.
