Photographer's Note

A lot of inland Australia was settled by farmers after a series of good wet years. Many of the early blocks settled on were just too small to be viable. The combination of following droughts and small blocks resulted in the landscape these days being dotted with ruins as settlers either walked off the land or sold out to neighbours.
These ruins sit in the middle of a recently harvested wheat crop. Another ruin can be seen in the distance.
