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)

Lighthouse and Masts

McCrae lighthouse framed by the masts of yachts at McCrae Yacht Club.
In the background (on the right) is the rising slope of the mountain Arthurs Seat.
History details of the McCrae lighthouse appear HERE on my Mornington Peninsula Daily blog.

Tall masts and lighthouse
Like spears rising to salute
God of metal light
