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)

Gentle Mist

There have been many cold misty mornings lately which unfold into glimpses of sun and then more rain.
Spring is so near but seems so far.

Wandering cold mists
Like restless veils of silence
Like some lost spirits

Weekend in Black and White

Great photo, the fog makes it mysterious!

A great capture of a cold and misty morning Burr! ... hopefully we're at the end of our miserable weather and can soon be out and about capturing the delights of Spring.

An interesting composition with fog in B & W. Wonderfully perfect.

I agree with Hans...I think there is a mystery aspect to this shot. It is making me think of the winds and the rain we are going to get next week when the hurricane crossed over to our side of the states. Your capture is perfect in black and white. genie
