Winton Machinations

Winton Machinations

Winton in Outback Queensland is a great place for nightscape images. The obvious place to shoot is the Jump Up at the Australian Age of Dinosaurs, but there are a number of places you can shoot right on the edge of the town. This image was captured in a park at the south-western edge of Winton.

The biggest challenge was timing captures between trucks travelling on Landsborough Highway.

Outback Queensland provides some very good landscape photography opportunities, and some outstanding nightscapes. Accessing is relatively easy, with regular flights to Longreach and a drive of just under two hours.

Image Data (both images)

  • C: Fujifilm X-T5
  • L: Fujinon XF16mm f1.4 R WR
  • E: Lightroom & Photoshop

Both images were blended composites, with the sky images shot separately on the same night at the same location.
