Star Woman.

This is anothery from the epic Menzies – Lake ballard excusion.  It is one of the fifty one statues placed in various locations on the lake itself.   Being on the lake at night by yourself is both eerie and lonely but also very calming if you out there for a while.

    Congratulations to you too, yeah a 617 with a digital back, Fletch, Lauder and Putt would all be in that I think. Actually, a Phase One on a 645 might do the trick.

    The lake is eerie enough even without the freaky-looking sculptures. They have an interesting story behind them don’t they Pete?
    Cheers

      The whole story is pretty amazing really and might never have happened if not for a government grant at the time, about half a mill if i remember correctly.
      I think the whole idea was a bit left field but I reckon it has probably been the best thing from a tourism aspect and I love the place.

      Thanks Mark, I’ve got a roll of canvas in the printer at the moment so I might give it a go and see how it go’s.

      Cheers Pete.

    This is a great perspective – I’ve seen a few from a distance but this is a beauty. Glad that Merv is your wingman – wouldn’t want you to get into any blog trouble 🙂
