Cal­en­dar gives a glimpse of sta­tion life

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

Ko­or­dar­rie Sta­tion on the Ex­mouth Gulf near Onslow will find its one month of fame next year when those who pur­chase the 2017 El­ders cal­en­dar flick the page over to Novem­ber.

While on the sta­tion, WA live­stock con­trac­tor Court­ney Robin­son cap­tured two im­ages, which have made their way into the na­tional cal­en­dar.

One, ti­tled Flam­ing Galah, is on the front cover while the other, named Into the Evening, takes up the Novem­ber slot.

Ms Robin­son said her part­ner spot­ted the op­por­tu­nity for what would be­come the front cover of the cal­en­dar and quickly told her it would be a great shot. “He was right,” she said. “El­ders al­ways has a great rep­re­sen­ta­tion of true Aussie pho­tos, and I wanted to be part of it.”

Taken on Ko­or­dar­rie Sta­tion, Pil­bara, Robin­son’s part­ner spot­ted the photo op­por­tu­nity with the galahs and told her it would be a great one, and “he was right,” she said.

Into the Evening por­trays the re­la­tion­ship be­tween their dogs and what they do, and was taken after they had ed­u­cated a mob of sheep and led them to wa­ter in the pad­dock.

El­ders mar­ket­ing man­ager Yas­miin Phillips said she was pleased with the qual­ity of en­trants.

“The cal­en­dar high­lights Aus­tralia’s di­ver­sity ... pro­vid­ing a plat­form to show­case beau­ti­ful pho­tos of re­gional and ru­ral Aus­tralia, while thank­ing our clients for their con­tin­ued sup­port, is so im­por­tant to us,” she said.

The cal­en­dar is now avail­able in all El­ders branches.
