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)

A natural loneliness
Close to Earth's spirit

Lovely. Kind of sad to think of the earth being lonely at heart. Our photos are like two sides of the earth's mood.
