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)

That's one of the brightest yellows I've ever seen! Good shot, Gemma. Your boat shed photos make me think of the dowdy, rundown Soviet-era boathouses on the shores of rivers and lakes in Russia. "People should have a boathouse and a boat, and should fish for their supper." (Imaginary Soviet ruling.)
