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)

Dromana beach

Just watching the waves
Just feeling the charm of space
Just living my time

Linking to:
Weekend in Black and White

Perfect in every way. (Quiet meditative beach, beautiful perspective, lovely in black and white, words that express all of that exactly!)

I looked at the date and thought, Saturday? It's 5:11 PM Friday here! Isn't this great we can communicate in seconds around the world, but that's not what I came to say. I'm really enjoying this photo. Happy Summer! (We're headed for winter.)

You've caught such bright sparkles in the waves. Really lovely.

I hope to some day live near the beach, I find the sounds of the waves and gulls to be very soothing. Lovely shot. Merry Christmas!
