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)

Quirky Clouds

During the summer period on the Mornington Peninsula, Nature seemed intent on re-creating the regular concept of cloud formations.

I have heard this cloud formation called a Mackerel Sky because it looks like scales on the mackerel fish.
It is lovely!
Happy Sky Watch Friday!
