Beautiful series.Been looking for an attractive old, colorful, stone cabin to photograph for some time. The few I've found were either behind fences and warning signs or plain ugly. Believe I got lucky with this one found amongst some old cottonwood trees...no warning signs or fences!!

Reminds me of those early maps (1920's). Sheep and wheat, vegetation.Very nice series.
There are quite a lot of these old stone ruins north of the Adelaide - Broken Hill road.
People built them during a series of wet years, and farmed. Then the normal dry periods returned, often decades at a time with 5" or less rain, and the farmers went broke and the little homesteads fell into ruin.
South Australia is the driest state on the driest inhabited continent on the planet.
