Nice subject matter, PH. Love it!
Thanks for the Australia history, foxy. The dunes seemed to be a good place to build the telegraph stations, but for the erosion (and the rabbits!) I find it interesting that the end result for both stations was quite the same.
Tnx lyndee, chickie and celeste!
Great story, Foxy.
Love it Pumpkin :)
A gem of a shot! Thanks for a good set today and the story behind it. It reminds me of the Telegraph Station at Eucla in Western Australia near the border with South Australia. Around the turn of the last century there was a rabbit plague and the vegetation which had kept the dunes fairly stable was eaten by the hungry hordes. As a result the station was eventually swallowed by the sand dunes. Sections of the old walls still appear depending on which way the wind is blowing.
This is really nice punkie! Great shot!
A very nice picture indeed pumpkin.
TY snooker, morris, muffin and shirley. :)
I keep coming back to look at the thumbnail, it looks like a painting :)

Very artistic, Missy!
Wooden poles. Surprising that they lasted that long.
Excellent photo, Suzy.
