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)

Wonder of Rock

Rocky coastline at London Bridge Ocean Beach on the southern end of the Mornington Peninsula

Rugged rocky shape
Boldly weathers moody seas
Like a crouched dragon

This picture make me think of an island we have here in British Columbia named Mitlenatch. Even with our rainforest habitat nearby, it has almost a desert environment complete with cactus. Nice reflections. - Margy
