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)

Swimming around at the Enchanted Maze Garden, Arthurs Seat

To swim with your thoughts
The luxury of time out
Without intruders

Linking to:
Weekend in Black and White

Beautiful photo. Yes, there are days when I long to be a duck!!!!

I squatted watching a pair of ducks enjoy some waterlogged ground up here just yesterday. I love how the colours of ducks come up in B&W.
