Artist's Description

FEATURED in A Love of Canon 10-08-2011

Camera: Canon EOS 400D, Lens: @ 38mm, ISO: 800, Aperture: f5.6, Shutter: 1/60

Taken at Sovereign Hill, an award winning tourist attraction in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. Sovereign Hill represents conditions on Ballarat’s early goldfields, where visitors can step back in time and experience Australia’s exciting goldrush days. Set on a former goldmining site, this well run outdoor museum recreates in fascinating detail the hustle and bustle of life in the 1850s. Staff and volunteers portray some of the behaviours and prejudices of the people of that time, and the Main Street is busy with people in colourful costumes and horse-drawn vehicles. Craftsmen are at work throughout the township, with a variety of shops and businesses open to purchase goods – grocers, candle maker, saddler, blacksmith and jewellers to name a few. There is so much to do and see. In the diggings you can pan for real gold! Witness $50,000 of molten gold being poured into a bullion bar at Sovereign Hill’s Goldpour and go 13 metres underground on a tour of the Red Hill Mine.
