As a travelling photographer I spend most of my time going ‘ooo ah, check out the light over there’ and the rest of my time cursing the harsh outback light that makes it almost impossible to take any good photos during the day. But take heed – one place in Australia you are absolutely assured of the best light for photography 100% of the time is a classic aussie shearing shed.
The pictures below are from the disused Mount Wood woolshed in Sturt National Park, New South Wales. The shed was built in 1913 with 12 shearing stands. The last shearing was held in 1972 when 16,000 sheep were shorn but in its height up to 30,000 were being shorn at a time. To learn a bit more about how the shearing process and machinery worked this is a great article.
