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)

These appear to be modern day warriors despite their stature of being young. They look ready to showcase their skills on their steeds (okay, motorbikes :), Cool riders clad in cool uniforms!
