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)

Patched Reflections

This is a photo taken at the end of May this year.
The Dromana carpark has looked like this for several days a week since!
The amount of winter rain on the Mornington Peninsula has been amazing.

I hope this means there will NOT be a drought in your near future!

Nicely spotted! The reflections look like they could be pieced together. I love puddle reflections.

P.S. I'm in Newport Beach, California and the blog is simply Weekend Reflections now. :)

Your rainy weather looks nice to me, our summers are dry. I love the fragmented reflection.

Your rainy weather looks just like ours these days and our temperatures are most definitely not the norm for July!! Terrific reflections and perfect words to match! Hope your weekend is going well, Gemma! Enjoy!

Very wet indeed. We live in a very dry part of NZ and isn't prepared for any rain. When it rains one day all streets overflow. lol
