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)

Round window makes for a strong graphic image. Odd to block light with newspapers.

Oh, that's funny! Great shot, too. I love the contrast between the trees and the artificialness (hmm, that isn't a word, is it?!) of the window and newspaper.
