Lynton Convict Station - Gregory Western Australia

EOS20

Perth, Australia

Artist's Description

The remains of the old Lynton Convict Hire Station located near the North West town of Gregory in Western Australia about 500km North of Perth.

The station was established in 1853 and was built to supply labour to the nearby Geraldine Lead Mine with convict labour.

The station was barely finished before it was closed after 3 years in 1856 due to the harsh living conditions and transport problems. Lynton remains the most intact example of a regional convict depot in Western Australia and is now on the heritage register.

This photo was a combination of a long exposure to shoot the surrounding landscape, and I used a spotlight to light paint the building, and then I took a series of 30 second exposures over 30 minutes and combined them using star trail stacking software to create the star trails, then combined the photos in photoshop.

Canon EOS 40D And 17-40 f/4 L.
