Yesterday I visited and was fortunate to be able to photograph the shearing at Deeargee Woolshed on the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia.

It was such a thrill to witness the buzz and activity of the woolshed. The shearers and rouseabouts work so hard, the pace never stops……….. 5 shearers, 9,000 sheep, 8 days.

Photograph taken 18/8/2010

A huge thank you to the shearers, rouseabouts, classers and especially to the Sutherlands for the wonderful opportunity, it truly was an eye-opening and fantastic experience.

Australian Fine Art Photographer, Dip of Fine Arts (Photography), whose work is inspired by a love of nature and the abstract.
My photographs concentrate on the light, lines, colour, shape and form found in nature…… from bushland to beaches, even my own backyard.
I hope to surprise and intrigue the viewer with my work and explore the notion that beauty exists everywhere…in the right light!

Thank you for visiting my gallery.
