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)

Remembering Summer Beaches

These were the skies closing our first summer day in November 2011.
They coloured the world of Safety Beach on the Mornington Peninsula.
It seems fitting to use them now when summer has slipped away into the wings.

Remembering time
Time when summer light lingered
Long into the night
