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)

boat featuring yellow...

rarely have I seen a large boat featuring yellow.
I saw this one crossing Port Phillip Bay when I was on the Queenscliff Sorrento ferry.

sunny metals
lightening the grey mood of
a boat's hull

The white boat is another Queenscliff Sorrento ferry crossing the bay.

Nice to add some color on that boat.

One of the tow-boat companies here has yellow boats -- you are right they are rare here too. When you see that bright yellow boat, it is either towing someone who is dead in the water" or else he's on his way to pick up one that is.

That first shot really does have a gray mood. Nicely captured.
