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)

curled bark...


Autumn is bark shedding season...
Often small pieces grace my verandah...
This one is lying in rain soaked wood and casts a small shadow when the sun appears...


fragment of bark
jagged curl of
odd beauty
