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)

Pier Life

A view of Flinders pier on the Mornington Peninsula

it's a fishing world
the lure of a long pier
casts a line of dreams

Great shot! It looks chilly, but still beautiful. I love all the vertical lines in the supports for the pier.

These is such a strong liner component to this shot. The more I look at it the more I see. You captures lots of details. It is such fun walking way out on piers and looking at the sea.

It's something with the water, something magic!

This is just gorgeous in monochrome ....captures the mood, where people who fish will do it in any kind of light or weather, they don't care. And if I didn't notice the hoody on one of the guys, it could be from almost any century.
