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)

Summer Cycling

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A part of the Nepean Highway at Rosebud, Mornington Peninsula was closed to traffic when this bike race was organised in the final days of last summer!
Many riders raced in teams with bright team colours!
This photo was taken when these two reached the last leg of the race!

How I wish I could do biking again. Not for competition but for fun only. My last time to ride a bike was when I was in 4th grade ^_^ haha! Happy Monday!

Excellent action photos! the Tour de France has just finished and I'm missing it. It's always very exciting so it was good to see some racers again.
