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)

Watery reflections in the wetlands at Hillview Reserve, Boundary Road, Dromana

Magical wetlands
A wild space for just being
Like synchronised worlds

Fabulous shot, Gemma.
I recently heard one of the most important remaining wetlands in my home province, British Columbia, is slated for development. Breaks my heart.
