Farms in the Avon Valley

Long Hill farm is between Northam and Bolgart. I have driven past this place a thousand times over the years and have often thought it is one spot I should take a few photos of, so last week on my way home from a job I made some time and stopped. It’s a pretty  basic sort of a pic but it’s typical of a lot of old farm entry gates and  I liked the overall concept and the old name plate was still hanging with a couple of rusty old bits of wire which is getting a bit rare these days.

    Nice one Pete….really like the colours in the shot, that deep orange and yellow is great with the blue sky.

      Thanks Sandy, Basic scene with nice contrasting colours is what I was aiming for in this one for sure.

    looks like the front of a Steve Parish ‘Australiana’ calendar!
    I hope you see that as a good thing, I like it.
