With proper obedience training, you don't need rope.

Shot during a picnic lunch today in a park in Maryborough while visiting my youngest Brother and Sister-in-law.

These rails are supposedly used by a small steam engine for tourists run by the local council. Being a public holiday, we weren't in any danger of it running.

    You mean, this one? ;) I have heard that EDI Rail use that line to transfer locomotives from the factory to the interchange at Maryborough West, but I am yet to get a simple answer out of anyone.
    I love Queens Park. It looks AMAZING in the springtime and complements the historic facades of the courthouse and the surrounding precinct.

    Well done, that's a great idea, and the result is very good. Obviously the subject steals the show, but I also like the sweep of tracks, and your use of DoF.

    Great shot. My grandson would have "stopped a train cold in it's track" pardon the pun. He is a tough lad. Obedient as well it seems. Very good result.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/steves_life] Well he was a wee reluctant.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/accesser] We had vowed never to return to Maryborough after our last trip there, but it seemed a lot nicer this time around.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/kth_friend] I had lookouts ;-)
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/98342273@N00] Thanks Rod. I wanted to use the tracks as they're such a strong compositional element, and then this idea came to me.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/56645261@N07] Thanks!

    Can you remember if the waterfall was "working", when you were there?
  • David de Groot said:
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/carjo] I don't recall seeing a waterfall. Was it meant to be going into the pond near the outdoor chapel, 'cause if it was, it wasn't running.
  • Rob Ferris || CARJO Photography said:
    Yes, that is where it would have been. That whole area was 2 or 3 metres underwater during the floods.
