Artist's Description

MUCH BETTER VIEWED LARGER

Nestling in a picturesque valley, a 25 minutes drive north of Ballarat, is Clunes, Victoria’s First Gold Town. Clunes was the site of the first official gold discovery in Victoria, made by James Esmoud on July 1st. 1851. Esmoud’s discovery triggered Victoria’s world famous gold rushes.

Clunes remains one of the most original and intact gold towns in Australia and there are over 50 buildings of historical significance. Many reflect the opulence and confidence of the boom period of the 1850s. The Town Hall & Court House, the Churches, the several old bank buildings and the verandahed shops in the central part of the town provide the basis of a living museum.

This shot is of the old post office, the image the result of 5 bracketted images processed in Photomatix with some fine tuning in Capture NX.

Equipment: Nikon D300 and Sigma 10-20mm lens.

The Italianate post office (1878), at the corner of Bailey and Service Sts, is now a second-hand bookshop.
