Burra is a pastoral centre and historic tourist town in the mid-north of South Australia, 150kms from Adelaide, between the Clare Valley & the Barossa Valley. The town began as a single company mining township that, by 1851, was a set of townships called “The Burra”. The Burra mines supplied 89% of South Australia's and 5% of the world’s copper for 15 years, and has been credited (along with the mines at Kapunda) with saving the economy of the struggling new colony of South Australia.

When the mine was exhausted the population shrunk dramatically. Today the town is a centre for its surrounding farming communities and is one of the best-preserved towns of the Victorian era in Australia, as a historic tourist centre.

This is classic Australian Landscape and it is one of my favourite images. Australia is known as a harsh and unforgiving land and at certain times of the year this cottage stands amongst dry wheat stubble that is reminiscent of a desert scene. I was most fortunate to have such a wonderful late light with brooding clouds and the luxuriant green of sprouting wheat in the foreground. The combination of colours, dark and light add so much depth to this image.
