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)

It's a Tough Call

In the spirit of the Halloween season, this photo has been slightly photo edited.
But the sign itself (and mounting area) is direct from the Boneo Maze and Wetlands on the Mornington Peninsula.

They're born to perform
Signs are under tough pressure
To cast a clear voice

I LOVE this!!!!! Love the added cobwebs, too. Clever. I love days when Nothing Happens, because usually what does happen is gnarly. Good one, kiddo.
