Thanks! Honestly, I was just firing off shots as my wife drove. I was stunned that any turned out at all.

It is the Golden Gate Bridge in the San Francisco Bay.

Please keep that a secret between you and me!

Thanks for the secret message Inspeqtor. I didn't want to show my ignorance and ask:-)

Just trying to catch up on a few threads. This whole site moves so fast I cannot keep up with it. So apologies to anyone who may think I have missed a posting - or two - or three . . . .:-)

Kings Bridge - Launceston, Tasmania
William Doyne was trained in civil engineering in England on the London South Western Railway and later worked on the construction of a railway near Hamburg in Germany.
In about 1861, Doyne was engaged by the West Tamar Road Trust to design a bridge across Cataract Gorge, Launceston. His wrought iron arch design was accepted and the bridge parts were fabricated in England and shipped from London in 1863. The parts were transported to Launceston, assembled on a pontoon, floated into position and then lowered on to its abutments on the receding tide. It was officially opened on 4 February 1864 and cost 12,000 pounds

Just seen this one Richard. Interesting history. Nice to know that the parts were shipped out from England. Now, as there was no container ships in those days - I wonder if they went by good old fashioned 'wind jammers' or if steam assisted sail was available then.

Thanks for the great shots. Making me reminisce of my younger days galivanting around the area. The Flume, Lemon Squeeze, Clarks Trading Post, Old Man of the Mountains, Cog Railway etc..

Both beautifully photographed.
And covered bridges! Added extras.
Love the way autumn changes your landscape.

Not much flow in the lower river.

And adding rocks in the river is a nice touch. So random. Well done!

Thank you all! We're almost at full peak color!

Ray I don't know the answer, but Google is marvellous, if you believe all things thrown up
Maybe never know, but given the timing it was probably sail

The Journey by Steam
The first iron-hulled steam ships made the journey to Australia in 1852. However, these early steamers, known as auxiliaries, still carried a full set of sails, as their inefficient engines and the lack of coaling ports en route to Australia prevented the use of the new steam technology over long distances.

Postcard, 'Mail Steamer Leaving Melbourne Port', circa 1903. Steam stacks and sail capacity are clearly evident.

Whilst speed was not initially improved by the introduction of steam, comfort and strength were. The change from traditional wooden hulled ships to iron hulls enabled steamships to be larger and stronger, with much greater space below the decks.

In the 1860s the more efficient compound steam engine, in which steam was expanded in successive cylinders, was introduced. This enabled ships to make the voyage to Australia entirely under steam power. However, it wasn't until the 1880s after the introduction of a government mail subsidy, that steam ships became profitable and began to carry the majority of immigrants. Less reliant on wind, they travelled at a constant speed and provided power for electric lighting, refrigeration and ventilation. Grand saloons were able to be provided for first class passengers, and small cabins instead of sleeping berths were provided in steerage class.

Health and Safety is not a priority then.


It never ceases to amaze me how dense intelligent people are.
I’ve had more intelligent conversations with lobotomised amoebas.

Thank you for your concern,
This was 07:00 EST, on a private rail system that does not run these rails until noon every day. I was with a group of people who were here for this specific trestle.

The skies were completely overcast, but very bright. Even with a 3 stop ND and a polarizer, it's very harsh. Of course, we were shooting east @ 0700.....-?
