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)

Clouds on the March

Bulbous clouds marching into Dromana

Parade of white clouds
An army of gentle fists
Making decisions

Hosted by Sandy Wren Sylvia

Some times they march in packs - sometimes they are solitary - but always beautiful and waiting to be captured!
