Hello to everyone, I love being in the Australian outback mainly around the northern goldflieds of Western Australia "where less is more". Have been exploring this area for the last 10 years and still never ceases to amaze me in so many ways. I wonder what it must have been like for the early prospectors and my mind wonders off just thinking about the hardships and comradery. People from far away around the globe traveled to very remote locations to find gold in the outback. I collect found metal objects from the early 1900's to make metal sclupture. This is aways very challanging because I sense the history behind some of metal objects and try to find just the right way to present them so it dose not look like a pile of rusty metal but tells a story. Warm Regards Spider52.

The chimney was constructed to burn off the gold bearing mercury which was a deadly procedure if things went wrong.

Make the time DG you would like it.

Had the pleasure of seeing the Sandstone Battery many years ago when it was nearly complete with all the buildings in place and now it's sad to see it in this poor condition. :)

Hi DG, yes it's on a station and don't know the name, it is easily found on the side of the road after going thru a floodway and has signs for Doyles Well.

Gotta go see this next time.

interresting, storytelling picture! Like, did youv've made this photo short after the exident happened? Greetings habimut

Beautiful presentation!



Too true Spencer but after awhile you get into the swing of things and forget how lonely and foreboding this place is at night... However an approaching cars headlights do make you go for cover in case its the local drunken knob heads from the mines or town nearby.. :-)

:) I like the revised sign.
