Charleston Pub


Our local pub at Charleston is the favourite for miles around. Maybe it’s the old-fashioned feel of the place, or the friendly service, or the food. Whatever it is, people come from miles around, every day of the week.
Framed size approx. 44cms. x 60 cms.

Parachilna Creek

You can’t visit South Australia’s Flinders Ranges without seeing Parachilna Creek. The road runs alongside and several times crosses the creek-bed. These two Eucalyptus Camaldulensis (River Red Gums), must be many centuries old, and have withstood countless raging floods and scorching summers.

Armadale Boats

I photographed these boats as we waited for the ferry from the Isle of Skye to the Scottish mainland at Mallaig. The cottages in the background are actually made-up, but the real ones are something like these, but not exactly here.

Eilean Donan

Eilean Donan is a tiny island with a castle whose origins go back to the 13th century. It sits at the junction of three sea-lochs in the Scottish Highlands, the principal loch being Kyle of Lochalsh. We were there in 2017, as also was a British jet fighter that flew down the Loch at treetop altitude at maybe 800 kph, leaving everyone quivering for the next 15 minutes.

Lancelot Pub

Lancelot’s the town that never was. It was laid out in the late 1800’s, the pub and a few minor buildings were built, and it stopped right there. My great grandfather was the licensee, and my maternal grandfather, aged 2, fell into the underground tank below the kitchen floor and nearly drowned. Fortunately, the kitchen staff were quick off the mark and pulled him out again. Today the ruins of the pub sit on private land about 15 kilometres from Peterborough.

Approx. 86cms x 67cms inc. frame.
