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)

Beauty of Tree Trunks

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ One of my favourite "dreaming" walkways at Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula.
It winds past farms, animals and rolling hills with glimpses of the waters of Westernport Bay.
AND I love all the textures of the tall tree trunks along the way!
SOOC Sunday #90

Leafy characters

Looks like a nice walk. The eucalyptus trees have been introduced into South africa and are now quite common here. They make wonderful photographic subjects
