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)

Raining in My World

Raining and raining in my Dromana world.
Even the Dromana Hub carpark is rather empty for school holiday time.

Watery Wednesday #148

Grey and rainy worlds
A kind of loneliness
A kind of silence

I just love it when you get the rain drops in the photos. They add so much and make the pictures seem so real. Please send some of your rain over here.....I am getting tired of watering twice a day in all the 100 degree heat. Nice capture. It is a true image of life on life’s terms. Genie

Sunburned country? What sunburned country? ;>)

This picture reminds me a great deal of Oregon (during the opposite time of year of course)...and I hope we are at least on our way toward Florida when that rainy season gets here. (It's lovely here now.)

Gemma, that rain looks so familiar. Seattle is gray and overcast most of the year, but in the summer is relatively dry. I like your photo.
