Around the Farm

I don't have my license, and there really is nothing to do outhere anyhow lol. Occassionally I have been out with Michael, on the 4 wheelers. The farm that we live on is pretty huge, I have lived out here for about 4 years and I still haven't been every where on it. There isn't that much of interest on the farm to look at, sometimes there is a nice sunset or sunrise, and although there are roos around, they are hard to get a good photo of. There used to be Emus in one section of the farm, where we lived when we first moved on farm. That is about 20kms from where we live now, so needless to say that I haven't been over that way for quiet a while. I might have to do a mission over there to see if there is any around that aren't camera shy.
These are a few photos I have taken while out and about on the 4 wheelers.

I really love this tree. I have always loved trees with big holes in the centre, lol I have no idea why. As a kid I always thought about people hiding out in them in storms, in later years I realised that probably wouldn't be a good idea as there would be a greater risk of electrocution.
This is the Lachlin river, not much water was passing through there at the time of the photo, I am not sure how much is running at the moment either. In November there was a huge rise in the river, the most water I had seen in all my time here.

This is a pretty sunset, the water is actually Campbells dam. The water that is stored there goes down the channels and is eventually sucked up by the laterals (sorta like mechanical soaker hoses on legs). Each Lateral is 1km long, these water the crops.
