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)

What a wonderful shot. It looks as though it was taken at the crack of dawn - they must start in the early hours at your school!

And yes a question, what kind of tree, is it a palm or do you have such trees down there...your world is such a far away mystery, as is mine I'm sure.

Now that winter is approaching here, I am glad that summer shots will still prevail, thanks to our Australian ss posters!

Cool, elongated shadows in this shot.

I don't remember my school courtyard looking as pretty as that one. Lucky senior students. Hope they appreciate their surroundings. Probably not...

Great shadows! They look like punk plants ready to burst out with some roudy rock tune. Now that's something I'm sure the kids would appreciate!

Love your cute Christmas dolphins :)
