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)

Testing the Waters

Not quite weather for swimming yet!
But some must test the waters at Dromana beach!
NOTE: While the humans are busy with the water the seagulls in the bottom right of the photo are busy rummaging through their bags!

The sun is shining
The beach seems so inviting
Am I warm enough

Nice processing. Hope the waters warm up soon!

Lesley said...

That's funny. I hope the gulls had as much fun as the kids int he water!

Carver said...

Great shot and fun that the seagulls were checking through the bags. I guess they were doing some shore fishing.

Thanks bunches for the tip about "comments."

I really like the horizon that holds ones eyes within the photograph; lots of detail and clarity. Wonderful shot. Smiles from Alaska. Karen in Kenai
