Artesian (2015)

Artesian wells are a common sight / site in Australia. They may not be pretty, but they provide water for animals and crops as well as humans.  Everywhere water means life, but there are few places  in the red country where the fragility of the water supply (from streams or the water table) is not part of an everyday consciousness.
