I recently learnt that this old cottage featured on a past Midnight Oil album cover.
Storm clouds drift past after rain, and this charming stone cottage in the Southern Flinders Ranges is bathed in sunlight ,gleaming crisply on a bed of bright green pasture land.
The Southern Flinders are dotted with stone buiding ruins.

    Love the simplicity of this and the juxtaposition of the abandoned home and carefully tendered paddock. Great shot!

    It looks like someone dropped their house on the ground and completely forgotten about it. It has that lost and found quality about it, maybe because of the loneliness. NICE SHOT!

    I love it! The composition, the mood it evokes and a reddish house contrasting with the green but blending so very nicely with the clouds! Fantastic picture!
