Property of HS (Harry) Whittington, 'Springhill', Brookton, Western Australia, Australia - 097. [Photograph] [Special Collections]

Summary

Avon Location 5781. Looking down from the upper slopes, the top soil eroded away by sheet erosion. The rocks and stones are bare and lifeless. The upper slopes are losing what they most need and the lower slopes are receiving what they don't need. Something more positive will have to be put in place to hold the water where it falls. When the water balance is corrected it's remarkable how the environment responds.
