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)

Strange Rainbow

No storm clouds.
Just a soft early evening glow on pale clouds and a piece of a rainbow in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula.

Rainbow character
Strange identity crisis
Like shattered colours

And the rest of the rainbow? was like a comet tail falling into Port Phillip Bay.

Wonderful capture of soft pink grey sky tonings and an unusual rainbow that's not quite sure if it wants to be a rainbow or not!
