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)

Low Light

Morning skies near the "red garden" at the Cranbourne Botanical Gardens

Low bundles of cloud
Like cumbrous burdens of light
Like darkening moods

What a glorious sky, Gemma.........and a lovely vista............your words are perfection, in describing what you see in your photo. Pretty cool "seeing" it one way through the lens, then translating it into words. You do it so well.
