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)

A tiny wetland area on a property at Red Hill has a small barbed wire fence and an odd partially fenced enclosure on the right!

Oh, I like that green grass.

I like the sense that this is a special hideaway, protected by the fencing!!

Barbwire's the most common fence use by people even in the Philippines. Great view!

Love the composition on this one. Just look at all that green...very peaceful looking!!!

Faye said...

Your photo perfectly illustrates something that I've noticed--the many, many shades of green in nature. This is a very pleasing composition. That wooden structure is a mystery--perhaps an observation site for waterfowl, other wildlife? I've seen something like this in pictures before, but they're usually up in the air.

Ah, that barb wire serves well for trespassers to the wetlands.

The grass is so green!
