Wheels in the tide - golden hour

...Windang Island.

Alternate views in main album at blue hour http://365project.org/peterdegraaff/365/2012-04-29 and http://365project.org/peterdegraaff/365/2012-04-29

The abandoned bogey wheels are from the 1890s when "attempts were made to make Lake Illawarra a deep sea port. A jetty was to be built on the western shore of the lake to allow the export of coal from the Ocean View colliery. As part of this scheme, a channel was to be dredged through the entrance of Lake Illawarra to allow ocean-going boats to reach the lake jetty. The channel was to be four and a half miles long and 430 feet wide between the breakwaters at the lake entrance. A railway line was built on Windang Island to carry rock cut from the south-western side of the Island through to the mainland side of the Island. This rock was used to build the breakwaters, the remains of which can be seen today. The project was abandoned in 1902 because of the problem of drifting sand blocking the lake entrance channel." cf http://www.lia.nsw.gov.au/the_lake/history_of_lake_illawarra
