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)

Nature's Watery Sculptures

At London Bridge Ocean Beach, Portsea are some amazing rock formations and water features.
This guy decided he would risk the incoming tide and stand in one of them!

Amazing features
Waters dancing round strange rocks
Nature's sculpture world

This is a pretty cool view - I am used to see the tides and waves fall upon the shore and flow upward onto the gentle slope. Here, the wave breaks and flows downhill onto the rocks. A danger to stand on, but there are little waterfalls everywhere. Melbourne seems to offer the neatest geographic features!

Very different ocean view! I'd love to see it -- not sure I'd stand right where that guy is.

The view is fantastic I so love it. But it made me cringe just looking at this guy and the waves is pretty sure taller than him. Was he okey when the waves came? ^_^

I'm guessing that just after you snapped this photo, the guy got drenched!


Darling, scarlet ladybug,
On the prowl for bugs and such,
If I met you on the rug,
I would not be frightened (much).
