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....

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.
