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)

Just taking a pause
Just taking time for some dreams
Just me and the waves

I like the balance that this image displays for a seagull, Gemma. The beak and the tail balance in shape, but also along the greyscale. Bit cold for me to think about walking along the curving waves right now!
