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)

Hastings Summer Skies

Skies at Hastings on Westernport Bay

Wide canvas of clouds
A plain of gentle waters
A touch of mangroves

Marvelous capture for the day, Gemma, such a peaceful looking place and beautiful skies! I, too, hope you're not suffering from the heat wave that I've been reading about! Wish I could send you some of the rain that is falling right now!! Have a great weekend, stay cool!
