Pulled up underneath a shady tree in a dusty paddock for some ute maintenance. Keeping the dust out of fencing gear and equipment is near impossible, but making sure things are running smoothly keeps us fencing day in day out.
Late afternoon light shows off the colours of southwest Queensland in the Balonne Shire. Had to get the camera out to capture the dust hovering in the trees and the fence line. Always plenty of dust out here while we’re fencing.
Wanted to get this last line of posts in before we headed back to base camp, so we were ready for the next stage in the morning, so put the big lights on for a bit of night fencing. In the summer months we prefer to fence at night to escape the outback heat.
Our custom built wire wagon makes the job easy when rolling out wire for agricultural fencing and exclusion fencing projects in outback Queensland. We’ve completed exclusion fencing projects in the Longreach, Paroo and Balonne shires.
One thing we love is when our internal ag fences meet up and we get to swing some gates. We take a lot of pride in making sure our gates are straight and stay that way for many years to come.
I seem to take plenty of sunset and sunrise photos, might have something to do with early starts and late finishes on the fence line. Either way, it’s always a pretty good start and end to the day and I don’t think you can beat an outback sunset or sunrise.
Looking forward to getting stuck into the next section – looks like a smooth run thanks to our top grader operators. The better the preparation, the easier the fencing job. Love these long straight runs.
Was great to finish off another long run at the end of the day. A few challenges in this exclusion fence with sandhills and deep gutters on the harder ridges. Not to mention numerous frosty starts. But winter days in the Queensland outback are pretty good going, wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
Decided to treat the team after finishing a long run of exclusion fence with a camp oven cut-out. One of the best parts about working in the Australian outback is the lifestyle. Doesn’t get much better than this.
Not the best day for fencing in southwest Queensland. Okay in the Cruiser cab though! It wasn’t the worst dust storm I’ve seen but I still decided to stay close to the shed and do maintenance for most of the day.
To give you a bit of a break from photos of ag fences, here’s one of an outback sunset. These big skies put on a spectacular show every evening and although the photos never seem to be able to capture them as well as what they are in real life, this photo is still pretty good and is one of my favourites.
