SkyWatch ~ Upside Down

In our crazy topsy-turvy world Down Under you have to look
down to see the sky.

A slightly different angle and the sky lights up like a Christmas
tree. Both shots are from Porapunka on the Ovens river in the
Victorian alps. One of our favourite holiday destiation.

  5. gorgeous gorgeous as can be and thank you for making me smile.

    I hope this finds you feeling well and enjoying your days. When I come here and see messages that you are not well, my heart leaps with concern. I send you healing vibes and vitality from Canada, the land where I am wandering for a few days.

  7. How beautiful the skies look in reflections. Here it is very cloudy today and tonight at 11pm there is supposed to be a wonderful display of asteroids over the UK, so we are hoping the skies will clear for then.

  24. Water is always a great means to reflect skies or objects in. Your reflections are excellent.
    Yes, I had the children in May and it was wonderful! We cycled a lot and saw various landscapes; polders, forest and heather, dunes and beach. Thanks for asking. Next year I'll try to go to Australia again.
