This does scream AUSTRALIA to me too. So much so that I think you all should have a holiday - call it Australia Day, and celebrate it really soon - OK - today if you like. Is this taken near Melbourne, or from more distant travels. The image title reminds me of the title of one of the best and funniest books that I've ever read - Bill Bryson's "In a Sunburned Country" (the sunburned is spelled this way on purpose). I'm not sure that Australians would enjoy the book as much as others, but his inquiring mind and off-beat sense of humour had me rolling on the floor.
I'll look it up (the Bill Byrson's "in a sun burned country") I dont think Australians would care about the text of the book or consider it offensive. We are renound for our bluntness and lack of tact alot of the time. (depending on our awareness of things of course ) I cant remember where this was taken exactly. I just wish I had photo's of my favourite place Cairns where the Daintree Rainforest lies. It is so lush and green and is in complete contrast to the "sun burnt country" I have presented you in this shot
When I think of your country, even though I know there is plenty of other types of landscape, this is what I think of most. You can blame National Geographic Magazine for that. When I was a child I read it all the time.
