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)

Patches of Cotton

Amazing summer morning cloud patterns over the Dromana Hills

Dramatic cloud worlds
Like wind blown cotton patches
Fragile soft beauty

I love those kind of clouds...the kind you can dream about when you're trying to get to sleep! (They look like a lovely comforter to me.)

I love how the front line of clouds often tell us that a weather change is very near. Nice work.

Eugenia Robinson said...

I, too, call these clouds "cotton clouds." They are just the prettiest...magical. I always have a little dream thought when I see them....genie playing hopscotch going form one cotton ball to the next. Beautiful picture. genie

That is so cool how the rippled clouds have that definite edge to it and then blue sky! Very nice shot.

In the first photograph not only do I see cotton balls but there is a tiny cross among them all. Can you find it?
