Taking photographs as a resource

Took some shots at the local railway station, I love the colours there - Waihi used to be the largest town in New Zealand at some stage during the mining boom, about 35,000, and now about 3,500 (don't quote me). Thanks to the efforts of enthusiasts the rail between Waikino and Waihi and the stations are maintained and operated as a tourist venture. It was the middle of the day when I was there, so I need to go back early or late as quite a few shots look overexposed, and even though I can tinker with the computer, I can't get detail in areas that were very shadowed or overlit by the bright sun. Amazing weather we're having, cool at night but sunny and warm days with fabulous light.

Love these. Haven't the days just been gorgeous. Looks like I might get down your way a bit in the not too distant future - just got the news my mum is planning to move to Katikati in next couple of months.
