Photographer's Note

This shearing shed is quite unusual. In Australia most shearing sheds are raised above the ground providing some shelter for sheep underneath. This one is on ground level and also unusually much of the shearing was done with open sides.
It is no longer in use because the station raises sheep purely for meat and have stocked the place with an African sheep that does not require shearing.
The red vegetation is a type of ground cover that goes red once the leaves have died off. Sheep don't eat it.
