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)

Changing of the Guard

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ More early morning Autumn skies on the Mornington Peninsula
Sky Watch Friday #137

Dark wings on dawn skies
Like some midnight winging home
Like secrets fading

The darting bird adds mystery and intrigue to your photo, Gemma!


A little birdie told me,
Although I don’t know why,
That if I were to look up,
Way up into the sky,
I’d see some wondrous planets,
The moon and sun and stars –
There before my very eyes
Blazed Jupiter and Mars!
