Shortly after I first arrived in Melbourne I took a picture of Flinders St station from across the river in Southbank. The station was all lit up, but the sky was not quite black, still a deep blue. I really liked it, but it was only a 2 MPixel image. For years I've wanted to get back and take a bigger version, but never quite managed it. One time, I was just a bit too late and the sky was already black (see here) and another time, the station was wrapped in scaffolding for renovation works. However, this week I finally managed it!!!!😁
So, here is the new version:
Flinders St Station
And this is the original:
The angles are a little bit different, but growth of the trees in the intervening 13.5 years made that necessary to avoid blocking some of the key features of the station.
I also grabbed a few other shots whilst there. I think this one works better as black and white as the colours of the city lights draw my eyes away from the bar on the island below the bridge.

Yesterday I visited the city of Gouda (well known for it''s cheese). It was beautiful Autumn weather so nice colours and beautiful shadows and light.
When I saw this old cast iron bridge I thought it was worth an image. The square format was intentional, no crop in post processing.
