Just south of the monastic town of New Norcia there used to be a rural settlement called Victoria Plains. This is all that remains - what had been the local agricultural hall where rural shows and fairs would have been held.
The site has now been returned to agriculture with the ruins surrounded by wheat. The name of Victoria Plains lives on in the name of the local council area (population less than 1000) but the council has long since moved its base to another town.

Nice capture with a good note.
Very nice composition with the broken wall in the fg, nice play between light and shades.

I like this scene a lot, amazing the detail of the brickwork in this one solitary wall of a long forgotten place. Its so unusual to see a ruin placed so perfectly in an agricultural setting like this, and I really admire your composition giving the scene perfect depth, with a beautiful detailed background. Fascinating place, and thanks for a great note.
