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)

I know how much you Aussies appreciate rain, but we get so much we get sick of it. It can get depressing when it doesn't let up for months on end, even if it's just a drizzle. Your photos are absolutely stunning! :D

the rain makes me feel so much more at peace than the sun (in the Med. it's too hot)
