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)

Bits and Pieces

Like silks and tatters
Like cloud fragments and frayed leaves
Like fuzzy white light

The silhouettes of the trees (especially that one with the weeping leaves) add so much to the sun and clouds!
