The shears are down and quiet, the holding pens empty and time for a well earned cuppa, a pie and break during the shearing session at Charlemont Station.

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”.

    How about that?? I was only thinking the other day about the wonderful shearing shed pics you did a few months ago. Great shot, Phil :-) I couldn’t think of a more difficult job (on the back, that is)
