Abandoned Outback



South Australia has many abandoned cottages .
Early settlers soon abandoned their homes after the drought became
unbearable. Many places like this can be seen, almost frozen in time,
making a beautiful landscape for artists .
I love the contrasts of the rusted roof and the blue sky,
the red brickwork and the sandstone walls.
