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)

Morning Stars

A winter's pre-dawn sky in the Dromana Hills - with a touch of Picnik
Haiku Heights #50 ~ Flaw
One Single Impression #175 ~ Crater

A crater of stars
No flaw of morning hassles
The dream still lingers

Hosted by Andrée and SandyCarlson

Haiku Heights is hosted by Leo

Ooh, like the picture of the night sky as a crater of stars, as if we're above looking down. Nice :)
