The Study of an old farm shed 2 - Experienced in HDR by 


The back of the old farm shed next to the Pacific Highway in the Clarence River region, around the sugar cane area.

My wife and I were travelling back from our recent holiday on the Gold Coast and realised that very few pictures we taken. As the drive back to Sydney was broken up over two days it was decided that if something caught our eye that we would stop and take some time to take pics. This dilapidated shed caught my attention (near Woodburn, NSW), likewise the clouds. It is very typical of farms in Australia (and probably around the world) in having old sheds that look well past their use-by date, but still in use. This one had some old farm machinery in it (rusted to the point of not being able to use) and lots of barbed wire bundles.

Welcome to my view of the world, through the lens. Sometimes fluffy, sometimes colourful, other times it can be dark and moody.

    The light on this old shed is amazing. It makes it look so alive, yet it is a very ‘dead’ shed. Such a total mess yet full of vibrancy and clarity. I feel as though I’ve been there and know it.
    Pretty wonderful really. Thank you.

  • Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words Jeff, as always.
