Throwing the fleece onto the skirting table, during the shearing session at Charlemont sheep station. There is quite an art to this long established tradition.
Skirting table
The table, or tables set in the centre of the shed, the tops of which are made up of wooden rollers. The shorn fleece is thrown out on this with the outside up, so the second cut wool will fall off and the stained wool can be removed from around the edges.

I often stand in awe and admire the beauty of God’s Creation. The colours, textures, tones and shapes,especially the way the light falls and reflects, thus revealing things often overlooked, particularly during the grandeur of a sunrise or sunset, or the spectacle of a rainbow.
I really just want to try and capture and share some of what I see as “The Creator’s Handiwork”.
