Rustic Australian Countryside - The small town of Rylstone

It happened. A rare weekend when I wasn't shooting for a client! So I threw the camera in the car and headed three hours out of Sydney to the Central Tablelands. 

I visited a friend's property, Lindoway, in Rylstone, a small town with a population of 615 people and at least 10 times that in sheep!

There are 65 sheep on Lindoway and this is as close as I could get as they are quite skittish. The leader sheep lets out a massive Baa (he tried to sound scary but Baa still sounds cute to me) then they all take off.

Today is particularly warm 30 degrees celsius but it did cool considerably in the evening. 

There don't seem to be any mosquitos but the flies certainly make up for it. The great Aussie salute probably originated here! So many flies...

There are always jobs to do on a property and today one of them was to install the letterbox. A little reward to ourselves for our hard work was a little nature walk.

This little spot at the top of the property is typical Aussie scenery complete with Kanagroos. They hopped away as we got close but we did spy the spot where they had slept during the day. I'm just glad that we didn't find out where the black snakes were sleeping!

According to the bloke who owns the sheep, The Shed was originally a "perfectly good" shearing shed. Now, much to his dismay, it is a quaint, rustic home.

I thought it was just lovely and perfect for where we were. 

Loved the church pews for the dining table and how cool is the bathroom. 

There were lots of little perfectly placed artefacts and pieces of art that seemed to pull the whole place together. Someone clearly has some design talent.

The new room being built off the main sufficed as the perfect setting for drinking our well deserved wine and watching the sun set behind the hills.
