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)

Soft Sunset

Looking out on a sunset on Port Phillip Bay from up in the Dromana Hills
Sky Watch Friday #146

Sun slipping slowly
A lonely ship wanders home
Romantic stillness
