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)

A Sky on Earth

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Watery reflections at Coolart, Mornington Peninsula
Weekend Reflections #93

Pretty water world
As if the earth holds the sky
A magic embrace

So good! Your image reminded me of one I have of a flooded area with just the top of a fence post showing! Great capture!

Another amazing haiku and reflection. Love the old weathered boards and the sky is so realistic.

So beautiful, Gemma. I love the way you did it, with more reflected in the water than is shown above it. Wonderful!
