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)

Perhaps it will rain

You're a morning person, Gemma--perhaps not by intent, but by dint of your work. Still, you open yourself to the beauty of the morning and the morning rewards you with glimpses of wisdom written across the sky, such as in this scene. I am in awe...


Red sky in morning,
Sailors take warning!

Who knows what might happen out on the sea?
Waves riding high,
Waves to the sky,
Waves crashing and dashing all over me!

Red sky at night,
Sailors delight!

Leeward or windward we sail with no fear;
Water is calm,
Healing like balm—
Ahoy, fellow sailors, landfall is near!

Your pictures are such a pleasure to see and ones that always warm the heart. This one is especially nice. I want to thank you again for all you do providing us with the different memes. You are so good to do that for us. Sometimes I fear I do not thank folk like you enough for all of the time they spend going nice things for all of us to enjoy. HSF and here is hoping you have a wonderful weekend. Genie

I am too sleepy in the mornings to get such wonderful sky shots :)
Gemma, do you use any kind of filter for your camera?
