Big Outback Skies

I’m back in South Australia in the mid-north town of Burra. I’d forgotten how much I love the huge skies here. This is farming country and a lot of the land has been cleared. The paddocks are dotted with abandoned houses from a time when the region was more geared towards small holdings than the larger stations that now occupy the land. Some of the houses are beautifully built and there is an air of sadness while exploring around the ruins.
