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)

Oh Gemma, how beautiful! Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos at Mosaic Monday. I'm so glad you decided to join this week. :)

I must confess I have no idea what winter is like in Australia. How cold does it get?
