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)

Ashcombe Maze Reflections


Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ There are two reflection styles in this photo.
In the forested foreground is a dark reflection in a small pool.
It is one of several pools, staged in steps at the Ashcombe Maze, Arthurs Seat, Mornington Peninsula.
In the background is a lake with a pale, misty reflection.
