A Cottage In The Bush.......



Tranquil - secluded and set amongst manna gums
this lovely old cottage was built circa 1842

I have softened the edges a little - I hope you like it

It's nice - does anyone live there? I love your header picture by the way, is it lotuses?

Dianne said...

Jenny:- No the cottage is furnished as it would have been in the 1800's but no-one actually lives there.
Yes - they are lotus flowers!

A beautiful image, looks like a Irish film set.

What a little darling! A pity about the salt damp.

I would never have guessed this was in Australia!

Rae Walter said...

Beautiful and like the way you have treated the image Dianne.

Andrew said...

Very arty. Isn't it gorgeous.

Petrus said...

This is very reminiscent of a crofter's cottage in the Highlands of Scotland.

The softened edges do add to the quality of the photo.

My immediate thought was a peat-cutter's cottage in Ireland. But whether it looks Irish or Scottish it's still a lovely, romantic image.

Is this now part of a museum?

Dianne said...

EG Wow:- This workman's cottage is located on a station property in rural South Australia - it has been maintained in it's original state so that visitors to the station can see how an average farm family lived in the 1800's. This cottage also featured in the Australian edition of "Survivor"'which was filmed near to here.

Lovely old structure.

How dreamy and romantic! Love the selective focus or tilt-shift or whatever you did to make it look so magical.

Love this bush cottage. It looks like it should be set in England. Is it still in use?

Dianne said...

Thank you everyone - I loved this little cottage in the bush and I'm so pleased you liked it also!
Have a wonderful week-end!
