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)

Lovely set of blue colors !
We'd some years ago "The world is blue" (Le monde est bleu", I'll try to find a link towards it for you.

Here it is

Strange, I'd changed the title "The world is grey" into "the world is blue" !
What a lapsus.

I would like to be there too!
Now it`s 4pm here, the sun has gone and it`s twilight time a moment, then dark until 8 tomorrow morning.
You can believe, I enjoy photos like that!
Thank you!

The beach is the most relaxing place to spend your holiday. I always return to Florida beaches every year to get my beach fix for the year. Happy Blue Monday.
