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)

Walkers in the morning sea mist at Rye Back Beach, Mornington Peninsula

Walkers on the sands
Ghosts retreating in the mists
Just their footprints speak

Nicely captured!

I recently took some photos of Cape Cod, Massachusetts USA with heavy mists among sand dunes... and something has been brewing to correlate with them ...
