Australian Landscape Photography

Hard Country

Back across to South Australia, the ruin capital of the country. Managed to capture these ruins in beautiful light as the sun peered through the horizon, before hitting the cloud bank. Have to watch where you are walking around ruins, bits of tin and wire. Off to the left is an uncovered well about 10ft deep so my tip is don’t run around at night time, pissed.

    very dramatic light there AB – looks a hell of a lot more interesting than when I bumped into you guys there later on… though you still salvaged something from then as well !
