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)

Dromana Hotel Reflection

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ The front of the old Dromana Hotel has quite an interesting style.
I chose this angled shot because I was able to capture a hint of a reflected tree next to the inside lights.

Great capture as always, Gemma! Love your composition that included the tree! Lovely! And lovely words as well! Enjoy your weekend!

The reflection looks like the head of a horse that is looking backwards. Great capture!

I have to smile at Pat's comment - she's right it does. :)
Lovely and elegant place it would seem.
