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)

winter morning in Melbourne...

view of yesterday's wintry morning sky over Melbourne near Flinders Street station...
The sun peeked out for just a short time...

the crowds have thinned
winter slows the pace of a
bustling city

Looks pretty sunny for a winter day ... kind of like Alaska in the summer (where we are now). See you on Scenic Weekends this time if my internet connection cooperates.

Interesting buildings, lovely sky, it's still hard for me to wrap my mind around winter down under!
