Captured on Norfolk Island Australia.
Norfolk Island is a small island in the Pacific Ocean located between Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia. The island served as a convict penal settlement until May 1855, except for an 11-year hiatus between 1814 and 1825, when it was abandoned. The wall is a part of a mill, where the prisoners were working in a circle for hours, turning a huge grindstone.
Camera Canon EOS 550D, f/9, exposure 1/125 sec, ISO-125, focal length 25mm, Canon kit lens 18-55mm.

    Very interesting and nice. It’s almost as though in it’s aging, the boat is clinging to the wall for support. Well done Jola.

  • Thank you, Randy.
