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)

Lovely sky and I like the perspective on the buildings.

Nice to be in the Big Smoke now and again. A clever composition with that row of skyscrapers pointing to the sky. I remember a time when apart from St.Pats the T&G building was the highest in Melbourne. There certainly have been some changes in the last 55 years.
