Default The Canberra Corillon

G'day all

Canberra Australia as the nation's capital city has many outstanding buildings and landmarks, one of which is the corillon of 55 bells, making it 'large' by world standards

This shot at twilight has a couple of hopeful fisher-folk trying their luck as well



as always, feedback welcome
Phil

Thanks both for your comments

Yes - Bynx ... it does have that feel about it although I just enjoy it as 'one of my keepers' with memories

I remember the old musical CD I have .... Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds with Richard Burton as the Professor. At the end when all is destroyed someone is calling out .... come in Canberra, come in. With no response. Great CD.

Hi Bynx
Guessing a bit here - but the NASA tracking stations just outside Canberra [Honeysuckle Creek & Tidbinbilla] were the ones most heavily involved when Neil Armstrong made his famous words ... "one small step" etc. etc.

So if 'Canberra' no longer responded, it probably comes from this era
ps- Honeysuckle has closed and some of its stuff moved to Tidbinbilla, which is now one of the most used & important deep space sites around the globe

Great CD Bynx, still enjoy listening to it.

Phil, it was originally released in 1978

all of us who at least 7 years old, not too inebriated, and at least had a radio to listen to will always remember that day and those famous words. That day happened to be my 7th birthday which was not the most important event of that evening. We were all glued to the tv watching Neil take that one giant leap.

The photo; not really anything too critically wrong. I may have backed up some to move the tower slightly more toward the center while keeping the bridge at the same height. Keeping more in line with the thirds. Maybe would cool the white balance by about 3k and tint slightly towards the green. But what you have works, and I'm looking hard for something to critique.
You did well Phil I like it.

Do you know what their fishing for?

Bluddy European Carp - the bane of our Aussie existance - they're into all our major waterways, lakes etc and stir up the muddy bottom, all to the detriment of local fishes who need / enjoy clean, clear water. Many of our migrants love 'em, after washing them in a fresh water pool for 24hrs, they apparently taste okay.
