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)

Silvered Winter Waters

Surreal view of Port Phillip Bay from Blairgowrie beach.
We have had days of grey, chilly, rainy winter until this recent day of gentle, almost Spring-like sunshine.
Watery Wednesday #151

Gentle fall of sun
Silvery winter waters
A sparkle of gems

That's beautiful and not at all bad for wintertime. (That's my kind of winter -- I could live there!)

Dinah said...

Lovely shot! I wish I can write so that I might make up a story about it!
