  • Description

    Sofala, Australia.

    Title reads 'Sofala'.

    Various shots around the ghost town of Sofala, an early Australian gold digging centre. Shots of the deserted houses and machinery shrouded by the early morning mist. Various shots of the early morning sun reflecting on the pounds and glittering through trees, picking out the dewy cobwebs. River Turon moving through the gold fields. Various shots of the empty mining fields. Various shots of the old mine workings where the crushing used to be done. Various shots around Sofala which is now a tourist attraction.
