    Absolutely amazing how fast they work, and in such heat… Another beautiful capture.

  • Hi Bradley, it was staggering to watch them going full pelt with hardly a break, the heat in the old wooden shearing shed was oppresive to say the least. I have a good portfolio of shots taken that day.
    My wife and I were invited to lunch at the homestead with the owners of the property, the house is a true mansion fully renovated to its original state.
    I don’t drink however my wife, Gabrielle and Paul drank the best ice cold French Champagne, I was pleased to have a cold mineral water
    with lots of fizz!
    It was an amazing day as we were given the Cooks tour of the property and the house.
    Their gardens are so famous that they are opened to the public once a year.
    How lucky were we!
    Thanks for the wonderful comment.
    Happy days,
