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)

Sunset After Rain

It has been raining, raining raining.
Finally, some colour in the sky at the end of the day.

Watery colours
Like a wash of candy puffs
Like melting moments

Glorious, colorful skies, Gemma, and what a wonderful way to end a day -- any day! The perfect words as always! I hope you have a great weekend!

What a SPECTACULAR sunset, kiddo! I miss ocean sunsets so much. I am trapped inland, mid-Island, now, in a valley ringed by mountains. We only occasionally get faint traces of color sometimes, leftovers from the sunset. I try to stand on tiptoe, to see the spectacular sunsets I know are going on at the beach. I do miss them.

You're not kidding about "some" colour. Those shades are spectacular, and I'm sure, especially appreciated after rain!
