A landscape version of a scene that I posted a while back. Taken in outback S.A in some nice afternoon light to bring out the colours of the walls contrasting against the blue outback sky
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.
A coincidence occured last week that still has me thinking ‘what are the chances?’. I was travelling with my Dad up to Marree for a helicopter flight over lake Eyre and on the way home we stopped at a ghost town for a billy and to shoot some of the ruins. I was walking back to the car before heading back for another compostion (as per this post). This probably took an extra 3 minutes. On the way out of the ruins we come to a fork in the road where I noticed a 4wd pulling up for us to come through, it looked familiar for some reason……….and so did the driver. ‘Get f%^&%$’ was my comment to my dad ‘it’s Tony Middleton’. 1600km from home in the bloody desert, in a bloody ghost town, a familar face, bugger me. It was almost 1 year since my Dad and I met Tony stranded up at Wallaces Hut in the snow with a flat battery. Just goes to show that it is a small world. Good to see you again Tone.
Not sure if this church is still operational but looked good to me in the early hours with this different composition and b&w processing….
