I'm sure the wilderness is more suitable although not perfect for Milky Way viewing.

Heres another one taken in the Bass Strait. ;) It was just before night fall and the small island is East Moncoeur Island. Camera was again 20D with 24-70L EF lens.

And these pics are for the Ozzies out there...Guess which rock this was.;) Apparently it rains only a couple of times a year out there in the desert. Just happened to be there on one of those days! :beer:

Incredible shots Grainde :D When did you do the Great Ocean Road?! The week long coastal walk along that region is one of my favorite hikes so far!

Amazing shots of Uluru as well :beer: I am still yet to go there but it is definitely on my bucket list!

Here's a few shots of a lily I did a few nights ago, the moon was out and I wanted to try and capture the Lily as best as possible with the available moonlight.
Long exposure presents a new challenge when trying to photograph flowers which tend to sway at the slightest breeze. The air has to be utterly still for it to remotely work.
As you can see due to the angle of the moon at the time it casts shadows on the inner region of the lily and thus doesn't illuminate that area, but it turned out ok :)

This one was artificially illuminated with a XPL-V6 3D 5000K flashlight with the reflector removed in order to provide more even lighting.
I wanted the moon to give off a silhouette effect but that was kinda impossible whilst simultaneously capturing the lily.

OK that's awesome I need to go replicate that image now :tinfoil:

I'm hoping to get this lens soon then I can take some real good night shots.

I was there in 2008 and did quite a bit of traveling around. Even went for a 10 day trek across Tasmania with some friends from Uni. ;)

Nice ideas with the Lilly and the laser tree, they make very interesting pics! :beer:

Its quite amazing especially when you see the sun rise and set there. The colours are incredible, it changes through orange to red to purple. :)

Ill upload a couple of animal shots that I took along the way.:beer:

Awesome shots Will and Anthony (Grainde).

Love the Ularu images, never get sick of them and you captured some beautiful angles there, not the usual ones we see.
Also, that Ocean Road image is mesmerising Anthony.
The 20D and EF-S 10-22 mm was a great combination, lovely FOV.

Will, great work with those night-time shots, the lily looks surreal and I love the laser tree, great captures mate.

More please guys....

Five years ago this Christmas, we were treated to a beautiful 'Christmas' Comet, Comet Lovejoy - named after it's discoverer Terry Lovejoy, a fellow Aussie astronomer of mine.
It's official designation is C/2011 W3 (Lovejoy).

I got up around 2.30am New Years Eve and made the trip to Terrigal, a beach area outside Sydney on the Central Coast of NSW with my camera and tripod because this was the time the comet was said to be at it's best.
It was truly a spectacular sight to see it in the early morning sky.

Hope you enjoy.

Lovely shots!

Is that hints of airglow or Aurora Australis I'm seeing?

Incredible shots RB!

It's been awhile, hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas break :beer:

Just got back from NZ after completing the Queen Charlotte track, Routeburn track and Kepler.
Below is just a small taste of what we saw and experienced, was truly an adventure I'll never forget!

Lots more to come ;)
