Rambo is a 2 year old red kelpie. He was so inquisitive at all aspects of the woolshed and I followed him around clicking madly. Dayne the young Gun shearer was easy on the eyes too! Not a bad combination… good looking dog and shearer. A pleasurable days work! LOL…

Hello, I’m a country girl born and bred in Dubbo, NSW Australia. I am a avid photographer of all things Australian. I love the “Aussie Bush” and taking photos of wildlife, nature and farm animals.
Most of my photos are Farm Life in Country NSW.
I am now doing a lot of Pet Photography as well as I have a great affinity with all animals.
I volunteer as a photographer for the RSPCA to help all their animals find a forever home…

Enjoy browsing through my photos…

    I love the look on the sheep in the background as if to say “my turn next” or “wish they’d give me a different hairstyle” … LOL. I love how the dog has posed too. This image tells such a wonderful story. Love it Helen♥

  • Ha! Ha! The sheep are saying “How do I get out of here!” I was so happy when Rambo stood up there watching the shearer. Love your enthusiasm Bev!
