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)

when colour is spent
another kind of beauty
lingers

Such a beautiful capture, Gemma, as always!! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog this evening -- I've been in and out of town with visiting family members and haven't visited my favorite blogs as often as I would like!! But it has been fun seeing my "grown-up kids"! Hope you have a lovely weekend!
