Image taken in Melbourne Goal. This tower is located at one end of the prison. To take this shot, I had to position myself behind the trap doors that they used when they had to hang death sentence prisoners. Because of the position I was in to get this POV, this view of the tower could well be the last sight that many prisoners had and since it was in this goal where Ned Kelly was hanged it may well have been his last view also.

Nikon D80 18-70 lens @ 18mm.

Where on earth is this group

I started taking photography seriously in 2008 when I purchased my first DSLR. I have since moved on to a D700 and I am loving it. I love landscapes but also enjoy taking images of just about anything that moves and a few things that don’t, I think that its just fantastic to be able to capture and share the incredible sights there are in this world. Take a look at what I have and please leave a comment to let me know what you think.

    Good shot David. I went to the gaol earlier this year so know where you were standing.

  • Thanks Polly, there is lots of atmosphere in that jail but the light is very low. I tried several shots before I got this one. Keep promising myself another visit.

    I think the low lighting added to the mood of the place…it was pretty depressing…but I thought $25 was a bit steep for the entry fee
