The 3 kilometre long Leigh Creek Coal train usually goes straight through to the Port Augusta power station with its load of coal.
I was trying out the new Fuji X-100S which I have written about on the Home Page and for once the train was working in my area and became a convenient subject.

The previous night it had dropped off 50 carriages because a locomotive problem and so there was a bit of activity at the sidings at Parachilna.

I have written about the Leigh Creek Coal train before so I am not going over old ground.
There is a picture of the entire train and some information its operation here .
However the little X-100S produced some nice shots in light that changed from bright sunlight to late afternpoon shadows.

Without Anthony’s mechanical expertise there would be very few photos to grace the pages of this website.

I am pretty used to sunsets where I live in the Flinders Ranges, but I found the ones on Sweers Island particularly peaceful.
Maybe it was because I was on a beautiful island with no internet, mobile phones atc…or maybe it was the tropics…maybe I was on holidays.
There are lots of beautiful beach to walk and explore on Sweers…this one is a rocky rather than pristine beach, but nevertheless it was interesting.
I didn’t take a lot of photos while I was there. I went fishing with my friend Mick a few times. He is a great fishing guide and we certainly found the right spots. I was a bit too busy to reach for the camera.
At the end of the day Lee would cook up a sea-food dinner to die for.
This is a scene I would imagine an artist would paint.
There’s wonderful colours, chaotic patterns and motion. Very busy but a scene where ones eye can wander to find interesting details.
This photograph has similar features but the main attraction is the afternoon sun and the incoming tide combining to bring the rocks in the foreground to life.
The location is unimportant. It could be anywhere really.
