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)

Unquenchable fire

Ralph said...

We too need to remember that fallen, those who served selflessly for us and future generations. An endless flame means that the memories need to be seared onto our souls so that we never forget...

Excellent. It's amazing the way you've captured the fire. It seems to hover above the bowl.

A very fitting memorial.

Lighthousegal said...

Amazing photo. Not only did you capture wonderful shadows but you managed to capture the burning flame clearly too.
The words go along very well with this photo.
Well Done!
