Melbourne has been experiencing odd weather lately. We are five weeks into Autumn yet today the mercury is set to tip 27 degrees Celsius (80.6°F), that’s seven degrees above the average maximum temperature for April. Yesterday was no exception. Blue skies and a top of 28 degrees; a perfect day to take photographs along the Yarra River.
This photo is a 5-bracketed HDR processed in Photomatix Pro. In the distance you can see the Richmond Maltings. Construction at the site commenced in 1880 with initial developments as a brewery and malting site. Not many people seem to be familiar with the name ‘Richmond Maltings,’ instead they refer to the silos by the name of the iconic neon sign that sits atop the silos, reading “Nylex Plastics”.
