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)

When I see these images I often wonder if we were looking at the same clouds from different places!

Nice. Stewart M - Just around the bay.

The texture of those clouds is fabulous! I haven't seen such nice clouds here in Ontario for a long, long time.

"Limpid whispers of colour"

Oh, what a luscious line that is!


No matter if blue or if grey,
The sky is my favorite way
To find my heart’s ease;
And now, if you please,
I must go look up straightaway.

Your clouds look to me to be white birds flying from the right of the screen to the left. They are so whisky and beautiful. This is a wonderful capture.
