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)

There is something inviting about wandering around a pier in the fog, but I would make sure I was with someone. :-)

Gemma - An artist, poet, and photographer. Your writing speaks to me and the word "scaffoldings" a great building block for a wonderfully sound foundation and use of language. Keep them coming and thank you for sharing the experience. Moving!

I love the fog, always have, and your picture of it as "scaffoldings of darkness," and "blurred realities," just lovely. Reminds me of the silent pictures and how they had that misty quality, so romantic. Thanks, Gemma! Amy
