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)

Wintry Balnarring Beach

Moody winter skies at Balnarring beach

It may be so cold
It may seem grey and lonely
But it's beautiful

The beach is always beautiful. When I lived near it, it always amazed me how, every day, it was a different beach - different tide patterns, different tracks in the sand, different colors. And always gloriously beautiful.
