Artist's Description

BEST VIEWED LARGER

Built around 1865 for £4 by Louis Beyer

This shot taken on my recent road trip to the west of our state, this is one of the surving buildings in the historic goldfields township.

In 1872 what was, at the time, the world’s largest specimen of reef gold – the ’Holtermann’s Nugget’, weighing 285 kg and measured 150 cm by 66 cm with an average thickness of 10 cm.

After this the town grew to over 8000 people, making it one of NSW’s largest inland towns with a kilometer plus of shops, five banks, two newspapers, a brewery, 27 hotels – all doing well – now the Royal Hotel (1872) is the only one remaining

Equipment: Nikon D300, Nikon 18-70mm

Technique: HDR 20 Bracketted Exposures shot in brackets of 5 exposures, tonemapped in Photomatix 4.0, merged in photoshop.
