Photographer's Note

Port Arthur in Tasmania was a penal colony for second-offenders during Australia's convict era. Today, the site is a tourist attraction due to its history and beautiful location. The first tourists (or excursionists as they were known) visited Port Arthur just one year after it was closed in 1877.

After a lovely afternoon walking the grounds of Port Arthur, and a tour around the harbour, I visited the church ruins as the sun was beginning to set. This created a wonderful array of colours on the ruins.
