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)

What a striking array of buildings, and a great choice for the letter "B"! Seeing greenery in the photos prompted a haiku of my own...

Standing like soldiers
Shoulder to shoulder, higher
Than the tallest tree.

Do have a wonderful week...:)

Great montage, particularly like the reflection of the building in the building, resembles a giant bank of TV monitors.
