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)

cloudy moon...

on the night of the recent super moon,
cloud cover meant that I was only able to capture an image
when the moon was well above the horizon...
but still, the eerieness was beautiful...

cloudy shapes
cannot muffle 
moon glory

I like the eeriness of the clouds and shadows. I wish I had captured the last Super Moon. Visiting from #SWF. Hope you'll hop over to see my Weekend #photo contributions
