Southern Cross - Hamley Bridge

Me and my wife went up to Hamley Bridge last night. I went for a walk at one point of the evening and spent awhile on a disused rail platform, ostensibly to take photos of McNaught's Comet in the dark country sky. The darkest place I could find nearby was the railway station. Whilst there, I snapped this 25s exposure (ISO 100) of the Southern Cross above Platforms 1 and 2.

Hamley Bridge used to be a rail town with over 1000 people (last few decades of the 19th century) living there. Nowadays it's down to about 600. I'll be posting photos from my trip over the next few days I hope. And yes, there will be some more comet photos!
