Artist's Description

This photograph had 4,401 views at 14th September 2014, making it my most popular photograph to date!

This is the “castle” located at Dunalley, in the beautiful south east corner of Tasmania, Australia.
This building is built on “Boomer Island” which is actually a headland joined to the mainland by a very narrow and low isthmus.
It has been built as a modern day castle, complete with a gatehouse on the isthmus and ornate stone entry with wrought iron gates…

It is located just out of Dunalley, in Boomer Bay which leads onto Marion Bay.
This area is approximately halfway between Hobart and Port Arthur, about 45 minutes drive from Hobart.

The photograph was taken from next to the Boomer Bay jetty and was taken on 120 film in 6×6 format with a Rolleicord V belonging to my good friend and fellow Redbubbler Slideshooter who was kind enough to lend me his beloved Rollei for a day. Thanks mate!

Photograph taken on the 23rd of May 2010 in the mid to late afternoon, about an hour before dark.
Aperture was f/11, I can’t remember the shutter speed but it was either 1/60 or 1/125.
Metered using a vintage Sekonic selenium handheld light meter.
Camera was handheld.
Digitised with an Epson V700 flatbed scanner and some dust spotting was done in GIMP along with a slight tweak to the curves to make the digital image match the print.
Shot on Fuji Pro 400 H colour negative film which was processed by Photoforce in Hobart.
