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)

Winter Surfer

Yes! It is still Winter in my world.
But there are some who still like to be up close and personal with the water.
Last weekend, this guy was paddling round the waters of Westernport Bay just offshore from Point Leo beach.
I remained snug in my warm jacket.
Watery Wednesday #149

Intrepid surfer
Drawn to the charms of waters
Winter's no object

Shirley @ The Gardening Life said...

I hope his wetsuit is warm! When you love the water, not much can stop you from enjoying it, like this man here. Nice capture!
