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)

Illusory View

Yesterday, Year 9 and 4 teachers (including moi) travelled to Phillip Island in Westernport Bay to observe examples of eco tourism.
This is a view of the approach to the island.
On the left is the arching bridge linking mainland and island.
As I photographed it through the bus window, I noted I caught the reflected shape of the bus driver and segments of street views on the other side of the bus.
The reflection looked like some framed art hanging in an outdoor gallery!

I see the profile of the bus driver! For long trips, I love to have a "chauffeur".

Hope everyone had fun!
