Ruins south of Hawker in South Australia

On a work trip to the Flinders I spent some time late one night in December to take few long exposures of ruins south of Hawker. The moon was at first quarter and was quite bright making it impossible to take long exposures of star fields.

This specific location is about 13km south of Hawker on the road to Quorn. The ruin is about 100m from the road and can be clearly seen when you drive by. I found out that late at night it is not so easy to locate…

The image below was taken with Canon 600D, Tokina 11-16mm lens at 11mm, f/2.8, 60 seconds at ISO-200. The Orion constellation is visible at the top left. The stars have trailed because I used a normal camera tripod and not a star tracker.
