Just after sunrise, the fog has not lifted from Lake Ginninderra in Canberra, you can just barely make out the details 10 metres in front of you.

Holbrook, NSW is home to the HMAS Otway, a decommissioned submarine. I don't know why they need to concrete it in though, it's not like it would be stolen during the night....
The orange glow is not rust, it's the setting sun glinting off the sheen of the sub.

Looking towards the 74" telescope atop Mount Stromlo, outside of Canberra, Australia. The Mount Stromlo observatory was burnt beyond repair during the Canberra bushfires of January 2003.

Standing on the Edge of Tomorrow

This is currently my highest rated image so far on Flickr, almost 2000 views now!

I was struck by this view, and you can only really get a good feeling if you view it at a large size. The light over the hills was just spectacular. I fiddled with it in photoshop to bring out the clouds but can't remember how I did it now!

Calm before the Storm

It's that time of year again when natures hues begin to shine again, I love the colours that nature produces, and need to find some time to get out and photograph the leaves before they all drop. I think I almost enjoy the colours of Autumn more than Spring.
