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 view of Dromana beach on Port Phillip Bay.

Almost empty beach
Sweet summer days are fading
Heavy clouds hang low

This is what I love most in Skywatch Friday ... see the change of the seasons all over the world.
The photo of the beach during your fading summer is beautiful. And it is such a contrast with our fading winter ... :-)
