This is is the south wall of the Kalamunda Library. It is one huge lead-light window that was made by local lead-light crafts people from around the hills region around Kalaumunda.

This picture was surprisingly hard to get ‘right’. It was taken at night so that the lights from inside the library shine through it. I had to go back three different nights taking shots to get the picture I ended up with and liked.

Because of the lights inside the library, if the exposure is the slightest bit too wide then, those lights ‘burn’ through the picture. Too underexposed and the blacks are too black.

It took a bit of getting right to get good colour and calm down the lighting from inside the building.
