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 Bridge

This is McCulloch Street leading from Dromana on the foreshore up into the Dromana Hills on Arthurs Seat mountain.
Toward the centre of this photo you can see one of several Mornington Peninsula freeway bridges.

Easing traffic flow
Functional bridge with small charm
Beauty of access

The bridge is of simple design but practically it's a very effective link between the peninsula townships.
(I took this photo in between the swooshing of the wiper blades! Almost made it!)

Plain old bridge of simple design work just as well as the fancy new ones. The purpose it to move people and traffic from point A to point B, and this one looks to be able to do it quite well. Another misty day, I see. We have ben having a lot of those lately. Sadly my computer would not let me see your first picture so am only commenting on the second. Sometimes it will do that for no reason at all. I just get a question mark in the middle of a blue square and no photo. genie
