THE MEANING OF AUTUMN

AUTUMN whispers the tones of yesterday in a minor key ~ Gemma Wiseman

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)

Autumn's Song


Autumn begins.
The beach crowds thin, the winds increase and the waves rolling in to Dromana beach become more choppy.


When Autumn begins
Nature's wild soul awakens
And seas spin to shore

I love the beach when the crowds have gone and the water is rough.

Happy Autumn to the southern hemisphere! We are anxiously awaiting spring here....and it can't come soon enough! This is a wonderful shot of the serenity of Autumn. It's my favorite time of year.

Like the texture of the sand against the blue of the water and the linear dock in the background. Nice capture. genie

Happy Autumn! Last year it surprised me when you posted your first Autumn picture and it wasn't our first day of spring yet (it's March 20).. I always thought it would be exactly opposite. So I had to go read up on it...makes sense after you know. (My scientific knowledge is sadly lacking!).

It's hard to get used to our seasons being the complete opposite! =0

Beautiful view & I'd love to feel the sand between my toes =)
