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)

I do think that is one of the loveliest of sports -- swimmers have the most perfectly graceful bodies and I love watching them.

(Must say that we older bodies in our swimming classes here aren't that perfect, but we all have a wonderful wonderful time ;>)

Gemma....Competitive swimming may be fun to watch, but my memories of my college swimming meets are harsh and painful! I was a distance swimmer which leaves a bit to be desired. The worst part from taking that racing dive into the cold water. Your shot definitely captured the water beautifully. Love how you got both girls in the shot.
