This restored trestle bridge is the only remaining of several that were used in transporting logged and sawn timber from Noojee to Warragul along a broad gauge railway. These days, it carries only pedestrians and cyclists on the rail trail, but in its day (1919 – 1954) it must have been an impressive sight to see a steam train chugging along at such great heights above the gully.
These photographs completed the roll of 10 after shooting the Mt Baw Baw Snowgums and a couple of scenes near Tanjil Bren. Near evening, the reading from the metered prism of the Pentax 67 at f/4, one second, was one stop under for the top image. Needing the extended depth of field for the entire bridge to be in focus, I set the aperture to f/22 and extrapolated the time for a one minute exposure to count out with the cable release. Fortunately there was no wind because the daisies in the second image would’ve been all over the shop for the similar exposure time that I used.
