    That things remain..?

    You know, when I first emigrated here, I thought…do Australians really know how lucky they are to have been raised here ..now I’ve been here for a few years..I think ..they damn well should do !

    ps…this is my first Australia Day as an Australian Citizen …so Happy Australia Day for tomorrow !

    A gorgeous golden celebration of Australia Day. Love the colour, composition and the relationship between the three youths on the yellow sand. Australia at its most beautiful. I agree we do have a lot to be optimistic about. Happy Australia Day Paul :)

    Once again a superb execution. the contrasting yellow in the foreground feels like you can step right into this one and join these men. Your composition, the use of DOF and the overall feel of a beautiful landscape painting, really gives us all something to aspire to. Bravo!
