House on the water
.

An old homestead, presumably abandoned around the mid 1900s, when land was compulsorily acquired for construction of the Cairn Curran reservoir. The structure is near the edge of the water line, so even when the reservoir is full it only partially floods. During the drought in the years preceding this photo the building and land around it was completely dry.
