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)

Just Clouds and Sea and Mist

Moody skies over Rye Back Beach, Mornington Peninsula

Where seas softly roll
Where clouds softly gather near
Where dreams become real
