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)

thunder...


one of two sculptures ... complementing each other... on display at Montalto vineyards, Red Hill...
The dual art was called 'Thunder and Lightning'...
It is by Brendan Hackett and was a finalist in the 2016 Montalto Sculpture Competition......


thunder
 a wild kind of art selling
warning symbols


Somehow, I felt that these two elements were displayed a little too close together for ideal appeal...

sign and a plant...


This sign seems a little odd...or at least oddly placed...
It is obscured by the plant significantly...
The sign is on a wall of The Nepean
- a new block of units in Dromana overlooking Port Phillip Bay...
