It’s called the Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park. A large sign near the entrance to this Historic District points out the ghost town and the nearby site where many large fossils were recently discovered. There is a small museum near the entrance where you pay an entry fee. Drive up the hill to a small parking area in front of the old assay office. From here you can walk the trail around the historic mining town. The elevation here is about 7,000 feet. The mine’s old machine shop has no doors and is open to the public. An old Dodge truck is parked in front of the machine shop. Light streams through the mill’s open windows and creates contrast problems. I shot a bracketed series of exposures inside the machine shop and through the windows of the mill to assemble an HDR image, combining over-exposed images with under-exposed images to create a photograph of the scene with the full range of light I actually saw. I then moved outside and photographed the old truck and the exterior of the machine shop.
