I love a sunburnt country, a land of sweeping plains, of ragged mountain ranges, of droughts and flooding plains. I love her far horizons, I love her jewel-sea, her beauty and her terror, the wide brown land for me (part of My Country by Dorothea McKellar).
When Frank at Dutch goes the Photo posted his latest photo theme “orange” I immediately thought of vivid sunsets from our travels throughout Australia, of red/orange mountain ranges in the Flinders Ranges and places in between. Let me take you on a mini-tour of my land down under.
Orange is such an uplifting and happy color and feels like an anecdote to a sometimes gray and depressing world. At home we even have a feature wall in our lounge room that’s painted burnt orange. For me the color radiates warmth and energy.
May we always lift our eyes and find the beauty in our surroundings, whether it’s a vibrant sunset, golden leaves on a tree or just a painted wall.
There’s so much around us to be grateful for. Every day, every new sunrise.
It might not always be easy but if we can stay thankful for the little things and mindful of the larger things we’ll have a more peaceful heart.
Let’s keep enjoying the journey and make it a colorful one.
In response to Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge on Orange.
