On this visit I was fortunate to be there after rain. Well before sunrise I swam through the gorge with my camera gear in a dry sack, then hiked to this location. The golden glow of the rising sun was a prelude to this defining moment. When the sun cleared the eastern wall, it lit the scene like a grand crescendo.

A lack of toilet paper is causing havoc for sewerage networks across Queensland as desperate consumers resort to paper towel, newspaper and even old clothes as supermarket aisles remain empty. Water utilities have long been frustrated by people using wet wipes instead of toilet paper. They clog pipes and create fatbergs — huge clusters of fabric bond with oil or fat in the sewers. Now, as toilet paper remains scarce thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, Rhett Duncan from south-east Queensland’s Unitywater said crews were finding a range of materials blocking the pipes.

This lovely Duncan MacDougall set appears to date from the s. The pipes are ebony, the mounts engraved German silver and ivory. The drones are free of cracks. One small crack appeared on the bass drone stock under the ferrule and extended a half-inch below that. It has been invisible whipped. The finish that was on the pipes when they were acquired is in reasonable shape and it was elected to leave it is. The blowstick and blowstick stock are replacements made of polypenco, but with the original mounts affixed.
This set was played extensively in competition during the s and s, and was played to win, among other prizes, the Silver Medal at Inverness. There are some minor nicks in the wood as one would expect from a set of this age, but overall it is a magnificent tonal and historic set, made by one of the great bagpipe makers of all time. Update: this set was sold almost immediately after it was put up on this page.
The buyer has opted to have the set stripped and refinished and to have the blowstick stock replaced with a poly-lined blackwood replacement.
