    wow... what colors! It looks amazing large.
    I just noticed that you used the tag Hoya Polariser... I keep aiming to get a polarising filter but don't.

    You speak a different language, we have railway stations :-) You have the same clouds though. I like what you did to the sky. What's the history to this place? It's in good nick!

    The little yahoo map up in the top corner's not very revealing... just a blank space with a crooked blue line!

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/xchelsea] Indeed, 'twas a good day for clouds.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/unrelatedpatterns] Yeah the polariser is a relatively cheap add-on that can really add punch to skies and clouds.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/mikelhendriks] Danke :)
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/andrew73] thanks :) Would like to get this in the late arvo or early morning too, but we weren't there then.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/teejaybee] Quite!
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/flash-of-light] We also use railway stations, but when you think about it train station makes more sense (the rails don't need a station, but the trains that run on them do) :)
    The station itself is now defunct as the rail line there has been closed for many years (thus it's historic status rather than active).
    The Deepwater Railway operated between 1st September 1886 (the day of its opening) until January 1972 (the day of its closure), a period of less than one hundred years. During the early years it was extensively used by wool farmers and tin & silver mines in the area.

    True! Great name for a railway.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/photogizmo] Thanks!
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/baar01] Yeah it can really add oomph in the right conditions.

    Deepwater town is a little creepy I thought.
    (Got a very nasty speeding ticket not far from the town, perhaps that's the reason I think that?)

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/louisebrouwers] Well a speeding ticket will leave a bit of a sour taste, that's for sure.
