    Great, love the strange sense of dimension here accentuated by those shadows, nice work Ben.

  • I think farmers just keep these old ruins in the middle of wheat fields (in the middle of nowhere) just to amuse photographers.

    Love the atmosphere in this shot – great geometry too! Have you considered entering it in the current All That’s Archaeology challenge?

  • Thanks Trobe- I ended up entering another shot of the Morialta Barns.

    great shot!
    but………………… german?! it’s like a lttle shock… lol.

  • We have had a lot of German immigrants settling in South Australia..many have done very well (ie the Barossa Wine District), but, like most other groups there have also been the failures mostly due to drought…this shot tells one of these stories. As settlers left the land, and others bought them up, farms became larger and larger, leaving ruins like this all over the South Australian “outback”…

    sounds great. and sad at the same time.
    at first, reading the title, i thought, YOU had german connections, ancestors… something like that. anyway: these remains are a good reminder that australia always has been a country of emigration – though maybe not as sought after as the united states… but i am not familar with the exact numbers…

  • Well its good for photography.! :+))

  • No I’m not of German descent, but I do like German food!
