When Dorothea Mackeller wrote the infamous poem My Country, she wrote about the colours of the Australian landscape. She captured the colours of Australia on paper perfectly. For example: “jewel sea”; “sapphire-misted mountains”; “brown streams”; “grey-blue distance”; and “land of rainbow gold”. I have always thought of this poem as being quintessentially true-blue Aussie.
Unless you have actually witnessed some of our Australian landscapes in person, particularly in the remote outback areas, tropical far north and sprawling coastline, you may not believe that the photographs have not been photoshopped to enhance the colours. I can state categorically this collection of Australian landscapes have not been colour enhanced. These vivid and brilliant colours are what the eye sees in this vast brown land of ours.
Aren’t the colours of Australia extraordinary? Where else in the world have you travelled where the colours of the landscapes have blown your mind?
