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)

Alternative worlds
Escape to Nature's wetlands
Like mirror dreaming

So very peaceful ... I would love to escape to here. I like the concept of this alternate world of nature being like a "mirror dreaming".

This post evoked my fondest teenage years spent around wetlands. Very beautiful and soothing.

Beautiful. Here in the eastern states, we have red-winged blackbirds inhabiting the wetlands. They have a very distinctive song that always reminds me of summer. I can hear them just by looking at this photo!

This place looks like it should have lots of anglers around it.

I join the chorus in singing praises to this peaceful scene.
