Re: Facade, Zanci Station.

Zanci Station is no longer a pastoral property. It has been incorporated into the Mungo National Park in western New South Wales. The old homestead, sheds, stables, and a few fence lines is about 3km up a dirt road north from the Mungo Visitor Centre. Here's another one from the same location: https...

Re: Bronco Yard Diamantina NP Qld

Mick, that is a well seen and iconic bit of Australian construction. With a few posts and unlimited 8 gauge wire anything can be built; like a fence corner that still stands after the fence is gone. I see what you mean about the virtues of your famous (notorious?) centre filter. That big expanse of ...

Re: Plough in Rain

Mick, that Fuji 250mm is working well, or you know what you are doing, or both. Main subject sharp and well contrasted is a given but look behind the plough. A potentially busy and distracting background is softened just right; it's there but not THERE. You can't do that with a short focus lens.

Re: Happy New Year fellow LFers.

That's a sharp observation about the non-rigidity of light weight cameras. The Linhof Master Technika which I used to have always felt solid on a tripod even without a bail opening back. The Toyo 45G monorail I use occasionally has a bail back and its stability on a decent tripod is never in questio...

Re: Stationmaster, Blackall.

Mick, you've got the story pretty right. The Blackall railway station looked the same in 2005, when it closed, as it did in 1908 when it opened. For the last decade it was the terminus for a mixed goods train that carried a few sheep, some mail, and a couple of passengers a month. The QLD government...

Re: Happy New Year fellow LFers.

Walter, you'd be a cert for lots of stunning pictures now that you've got that fancy Horseman 45FA camera. May your creative resources never be stolen from you again. I want to see what you achieve.
