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)

Parting cityscape clutter
Injecting a soul

Gemma...This is beautiful and your haiku so meaningful. Love seeing the individual sprays of water rising up into what looks like a water volcano. Such a pretty capture. genie
