Tardun Truck

No not a Tardis Truck! Tardun is an abandoned railway town on the Mingenew to Mullewa line. All that is left of Tardun are the buildings behind the truck and an old hall about 500m away. I didn’t bother taking shots of the buildings as there was a lot of broken asbestos in them, and the buildings didn’t look structurally safe.

I have no idea what sort of truck this is as all identifying marks have long since gone. This image was taken at sunrise. I bracketed a series of shots, picked an underexposed shot in which the sky wasn’t blown out, and then recovered the shadows in Lightroom.

Mark – here is the OOC image – impressive DR for the D800E. Oh – and you can see someone else was there taking photos – he had a point and shoot, and wet weather gear for himself!

Wow

My new D800E arrived today. It is an amazing camera, but unforgiving. Compared to the Nikon D7000 the depth of field is less, focus is so much more critical, but the detail is staggering. It is also good to see the Nikon 14-24mm zoom no longer operating as a 21-36mm zoom! I can see I will take some time to learn how to use this camera. In the meantime here is a 2 image stitch in which all these things are not critical. Taken tonight at Quindalup. I can see that any images displayed on the web will be totally unable to show off the capabilities of this camera. Oh well – must be off to practise! Quindalup and the D800E
