HUEman Nature

...I love a colour burst country, a land of rainbow rains... I'm just paraprosing a very famous Australian poem by Dorothea Mackellar

These are photos I took over the long weekend...we went back to nature to celebrate Earth Day. No. Not really. But it coincided so I didn't feel so bad about my carbon footprint on Earth Day.
...having said that... I try to make every day earth day... you know?
Isn't Mother Nature wonderful? Look at her vibrant colours, her hueman being...
