    Burra

    Went country this weekend and saw the lovely town of Burra.

    some of the property for sale is awesome to say the least.

    the small buildings are lovely around here and this old church was no exception

    "Burra is a country town in South Australia located 160km north of Adelaide, with a population of approximately 1,200 people. Founded in 1845, it was from then until 1877 the site of one of the world’s major copper mines, the income from which did much to save the young colony from financial disaster. By the time the mine closed in 1877 it was already also serving as a transport centre for the north-east of the colony and parts of western NSW and SW Qld."

    Looks like a great getaway mate, and well-earned by the sounds. :)

    If that isn't turned into a boutique brewery, I'd like to know why!

    I like this shot, and the use of the UWA works, but I'd suggest condering getting a little closer and higher. Closer would get the trees filling more of those upper corners of the image, and higher might show off some more of the snaking "S" shape in the path. Stunning building/setting though, I wish there was more stuff like that around Vic but everything either gets knocked down or converted into a dwellings (typically with a mangled mess of conflicting design... :doubt: )

    These two are just awesome. Love them, wouldn't change 'em a bit. The first is just such a well composed and concise summary of the location, and the second just has so much information packed in - but without being overly busy. The lighting suits the scene to perfection, seriously - love these two shots. Great stuff mate!

    Thanks for the feedback, it is good! (very much appreciated )

    the potential Brew house was roped off (orange construction stuff) and near derelict.

    With two petrol bowsers out the front is is a "no brainer" business wise.


    all the property for sale over $300,000 was spectacular

    check this place out for $340th (main st for traffic)

    that bloody Church was on top of a "HILL"

    it was way up and the shot hides the fact that I am aiming at 35 - 40 degrees up from the horizon (yep , half way to straight up nearly!) and was hard for me to stand there as it was (100-400 on my bucket list as of now!!! )

    it was in my face as I came around a corner at 95+km/ph and said "STOP" to me...............

    I'm not a "god botherer" but the instant diversion up the hill by chance was behind the caretakers that opened the gate and gave us access.




    the last few of the mine were quick snaps (but thought out on the run) and I was pissed that we left so soon.

    Am going back this Year again.

    and will go with a tele as there are so many bird opportunities that it would justify the lens!



    cheers Mate
