This rustic site is just north of Yarram in the Gippsland area of Victoria, Australia. The shed in the background has fallen down since I took this photo in March 2009.

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.

    Very opportune capture then Michael, It looks on the verge of collapse here. Lovely sepia tones to this image, great shape and lines to the central feature. Super work.

  • Thanks Gary. I might try knocking on doors to get permission to get closer to these gems in the future. I’ll try this in full sepia as well.

    …nice capture Michael… love the rustic effect and that old southern cross looks like it wont be standing much longer…

  • Thanks Ray. I just had to brown it up a bit to give it that extra rustic look.
