Roadside ruins

Seen by the side of the Wilpena Pound-Hawker road.
Interesting find. I like the golden light!

The colour of the landscape is amazing! I wonder who lived in such a place completely alone with no neighbours?

Lovely shot and light, it could be anywhere here too.

Wonder what it once was........you're getting some great out of the window shots!

It looks rather sad wonder if it was once a home

Terrific :)

Lovely light. We saw so many ruins when we were in that area!

And this is how the work of human hands looks towards the forces of nature. Great shot.

@kwind Thanks, early morning has some good points.

@pamknowler Thanks Pam. For a partial answer to your question check out the link I'm posting today with my shots. The rest of the answer relates to a widespread and serious miscalculation by people in the late nineteenth/early twentieth century that 'rain follows the plough' which, when coupled with some very unusually benign seasons drew farmer-settlers to this and other areas with highly variable low rainfall.

@haskar Thanks for pointing out the framing, I hadn't actually thought of that specifically.

@ludwigsdiana From what I've heard and read there are numerous similarities between your part of the world and mine.

@yaorenliu Sure was Yao if there was anything interesting happening outside. Only 23 of us, and had three very long days sitting on a very comfortable 50-seater bus so lots of room and time to fiddle round.

@casablanca Thanks Casa. Check out my reply to @pamknowler for some further information.

@onewing Very likely, this whole area was settled by farming hopefuls. See my reply above to @pamknowler and the link in today's post.

@gilbertwood Oh for more time in interesting places.

@merrelyn Yes, so did we. Didn't have time on this trip to take many of these photos, but took quite a few last time. Fascinating part of the world.

It's curious to me that the corners withstood the ravages of time but the walls didn't. But then there are abandoned resort homes around here with the same results- so it must be the way things decay. Good shot.
