Australian kelpies are wonderful sheep dogs and this one is having a lift to the paddock where he’ll muster the sheep for shearing.

I live in the Australian countryside with my animals. Together we explore the land around us and their connection with the world helps me to see what I would otherwise be blind to. They are my teachers.

My aim is to convey this other way of seeing through my photography.

    Love seeing the local color!!!

  • Years ago I had a bike and a kelpie and he’d ride just like this too:-) He also rode horses like Fred. This dog is one of Fred’s mates:-)

    That’s awesome … he can save some energy before a hard day’s work!

  • Yes. He’d done a lot of work that week, two 16k herding trips to bring the sheep home from their holiday but he was still happy to work!
