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)

Beautiful Cold Waters

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Even on a somewhat grey and chilly day, this scene at Stony Point, Mornington Peninsula looks beautiful and peaceful.
Watery Wednesday #94

Lonely chilled waters
Weathered timbers struggling on
Sweet serenity

Sometimes gray and chilly can be much more beautiful and appealing just for it's solitary essence. The photo melds perfectly with your words.

It is so peaceful and serene. A nice place for an early morning hike.

P.S. My blog is better viewed with firefox as the web browser. I have also reduced my photos. Thanks for trying, it is very much appreciated.

You can just see how cold it is in the water.
But it sure looks like a great place for a relaxing walk.
