Field Trip 2 - Mt Stromlo






Mt Stromlo still bears the scars of the 2003 Canberra firestorm that destroyed much of the Observatory on the site. The first three shots show details of one of the buildings not yet restored. I like the detail of the crack in the wall in the third shot. The sky in the window frame gives the appearance of a reflection but in fact we are looking directly through the empty shell of the building. In the next shot, we do see a reflection and this sunset is rather haunting as the colours seem like a site memory of the devastating firestorm. Finally, we see one of the Observatory domes - Mt Stromlo in the twilight zone.
