Beth & Trevor Reid - Mallee Topsoil

previous - next

The memory of a dust storm that hit north west Victoria, the swirling mass of air and dust bearing down. The colour of the soil a vivid red, the clean, clear blue sky ahead of the storm with the swirling mass of red relentlessly overtaking it. The seeming flatness of the mallee plains offer a wide view of the storm approaching across a huge expanse of sky creating a sense of urgency and wonder. The clearing of the mallee scrub and the planting of crops is a contributor to the instability of the topsoil and a precursor to these storms.
