Along The Road
The Old Wagon
When I saw this old wagon on a friends farm, near Gnowangerup, Western Australia, I couldn’t help but wonder what things it had seen in it’s life. One day, it was parked up under this tree, never to be used again. Canon 6D 1/250sec @ f/7.1 ISO200 EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM
This old windmill and water tank still work, but is a long time since anyone lived on this old site. Located just east of York, Western Australia.
Old Malebelling Farm
On a recent trip around York, Western Australia, I came across this old windmill and water tank. There were also remnants of an old structure, with only the rotting wooden poles left standing.
Brighouse Road Sunset
Storm Chase 5th January South Quairading, Western Australia After chasing a couple of thunderstorm cells around the wheatbelt region of Western Australia, we set up at this crossroad to watch the sunset. We were treated to an amazing display of color. There was some lightning and thunder around and it was quite windy at times, but I just love the feel of this.

Old Coach House-2
This old building is on the Toodyay-Goomalling Road and I have passed it many times whilst out storm chasing. Today I determined to stop and photograph it. It is on private property, so you have to shoot it from the road, which limits the angles you have. There is a sign hanging above the door that reads 'Old Coach House 1888'.
Old Coach House-1
This old building is on the Toodyay-Goomalling Road and I have passed it many times whilst out storm chasing. Today I determined to stop and photograph it. It is on private property, so you have to shoot it from the road, which limits the angles you have. There is a sign hanging above the door that reads 'Old Coach House 1888'. I have processed this image a little differently to my normal style to give it a dramatic feel.

The East Boundary Fence
Back in my younger days, I had a few jobs on various stations around Western Australia. This photo reminds me of long days riding the boundary fence lines checking for breaks and holes. There was always a sense of mystery as to what lay beyond the fence, out in the wild and remote regions of Western Australia.
November Rains - An iconic scene in the wheatbelt region of Western Australia, late spring rains often mark the start of the thunderstorm season. This storm developed after sunset to produce lighning that started several fires. Not a good thing when the crops are so close to being harvested.
