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)

succumbed...


an old fruit tree that has finally succumbed to the whims of the winds...
But the birds still love it...

lifeless
but for some
beauty never fades

Having the three lying down like that, changes the shadows, and makes you start questioning the world again...

It is so true -- dead trees and snags make wonderful bird habitat.
