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)

Summer Skies Evolving

Yesterday we were driving along the Mornington Peninsula freeway from Mornington to Dromana.
The air was warm.
I could roll the window down to catch fresh breezes.
I could take photos of the passing countryside of fields and rising Arthurs Seat mountain just outside Dromana.

Joy of summer skies
Wonder of sun-bathed country
Delight of new warmth
