Big Hill is not so much a place, as an area. Folklore has it that the area is so named because drovers were always told to keep the ‘big hill’ on their left as they took stock south. The area is marked by this wonderful bluestone Uniting Church building, built in 1878 from local rock…reaching it is more suited to 4×4, especially after flooding! Located 20klms from Marulan along a dirt road.

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    Great capture Rosalie. Love the stone patterns.

  • Even the road along the way has great rough chunks of the bluestone in it. Buildings like this stand forever. Thanks for the encouragement Sharon.

    I love those beautiful old country churches. Great shot Rosalie.

  • So solid Michael – beautifully built, but hardly used. A tiny cemetary of 45 graves (over the 100 yrs it has been there!) and pretty overgrown.

    So this is what you were talking about. Worth the deviation in your travels. Rather like the church at Wallendbeen in style. Well shot.

  • Long grass and inappropriate footwear meant I didn’t venture past the fence – it would have been great to wander and read the old gravestones and get a different view on the church. There are some great rusty vehicles along the way too but a tad difficult to get to.

    I just love these old churches … so solid and stately. Its so sad to see them sitting there these days with so little attention. Whether you are religious or not, the church provided so much stability for people in these remote areas in our history and we have them to thank for recording our births, marriages and deaths … we would be a lost society without these old churches … beautiful image Rosalie♥

    This is such a gorgous image with all the details and colors, Rosalie. If only these old buildings could talk, they would have many tales to speak of.
