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)

Shiny Chrome

In the summer season, many groups of bikies like to enjoy a weekend ride together down the Mornington Peninsula.
Often, groups stop in Dromana and they line up outside cafes.
I am always fascinated with all the different styles and the shiny chrome!
So many palettes for cameo reflections!

Excitement of bikes
Like sweet adventure resting
Like shining freedom

So many different reflections, Gemma. I'm going to have to look when I see a motorcycle parked.
One of my favourite Australian words has to be "bikies"! I just try to imagine what big, tough North American bikers would say to being called bikies. I also like the word "surfies" but I don't think they're as scary, except to watch.
All the best for 2012.

It amazes me how bikers can ride for hundreds of miles but their bike always look so shiny.

There is NOTHING like the reflections you can get in freshly polished chrome. These are awesome...and the bike is pretty nice, too. Great shot. genie
