The old big red brick mill was a famous flourmill owned by Captain Hart called The Hart’s Mill established in 1855 and being steam driven it was the biggest in Australia at the time.
The recent Newport Quays redevelopment will see the old mills eventually become a centrepiece of a heritage precinct. It is now one of the only heritage building left untouched around the area.
When the sun sets, the warm lighting really brightens up the red brick walls of the mill. I took the timelapse shots as the sun was setting and really had no choice but to use Aperture mode. But then as it starts getting dark, the flood light lit up and this affected the shutter speed setting from the Aperture mode, hence the flickering.
I will try and do another timelapse at a much earlier time before the sky turns dark.
