Di and Geoff Mengersen from Depot Spring Station in the northern Flinders Ranges.

The Mengersens are about to start their annual muster and shearing which takes most of February.

Last year I spent about three weeks on and off, following the whole operation.

I was shooting a story for the R. M. Williams “Best of Outback Stations” publication which came out last July.

When you shoot for the R M Williams you agree to not use the images for 6 months and that time is now up.

Depot Spring is a family affair, still going while surrounding properties have succumbed to drought, floods and hard times.

The country is surprisingly beautiful too.

I’ll be running their story over the next few posts. I hope you will enjoy it.
