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)

Blue Glows

Bright blue water worlds
Beneath a glistening blue sky
A breath of fresh mint

2 beautiful colors of blue.
While on my cruise in Oct. I, too, had the chance to take photos of such beautiful, natural blues.
Thanks for sharing...

What a view! You always capture places where I could "see" myself sitting and enjoying the surroundings.
Have a great day!

I enjoy looking at the ocean. I'm not much of a swimmer or boater either. Saw the new movie called "Australia" and thought it was quite good. Have you seen it and what did you think?
