I'll chuck another option into the mix, Imgur. I've been using it for years and find it's a great embedding tool. It allows you to link uncompressed images at their original size so if you upload at 1024px you can essentially link uncompressed images. I usually upload at around 1400px wide and I've found its compression to sharpen and add noise to images but its not too bad.

Can't believe photobucket did that though, must have been financially desperate to literally hold images hostage. The fee is insanely ridiculous.

Envy the area you frequent Wassa, the cold doesn't seem to bother me as much as most but then I've never lived somewhere where it snows frequently so maybe after some time I'd get sick of it. Love that image with the light rain/snow falling in the distance.

The cloud cover ruined what might have been. frown


Yeah I absolutely love that road! Lived in Blyth for a couple years and so have driven it hundreds of times now, I could never get sick of it. I do agree about the turbines, they make good subjects but they are becoming very widespread across the hills making their exclusion harder. Unfortunate consequence of progress I guess.

I don't think the cloud ruined the shot, I like how in the second one the cloud kinda parallels the ground.

Yep also went out last night and whilst it was going off in Tasmania I could see nothing but moonlight here. I've seen it in the past naked eye at this latitude but it was pitch black.

Some rainbow action from me, the week of frequent showers and near continuous cloud is over, time for some sunshine smile



You may notice the lack of colour in this rainbow...the drizzle was very fine and so it came out whiter like you'd see in a fogbow.

Wow this thread is two pages already and we're a week into spring!! Great photos guys, keep it up.

I will second Markus' comment on Imgur. I use it from time to time when I want to quickly upload an image and share it right away as you don't even have to sign in.

I mainly use Flickr though. I have noticed that a bit of quality gets lost though. Instagram really keeps the image quality, but you can't embed code to paste in forums etc. (at least I don't think)

My images have nothing on the other ones, but I thought I might share anyway. Last week on the escarpment above me:





The sunlight looks warm and inviting, but it was actually freezing cold. About 10 degrees with plenty of wind!

When it snows here, it leaves as quickly as it falls. The predicted snow falls for the night of the 7/8th of Sept didn't happen.







Sounds a bit like here Wassa. Snow is a rarity here so when it happens people generally go out of their way to see it before it disappears. Nothing this winter at all but every now and then it surprises us.
Keep trying for that elusive aurora shot Eddy. I see like me you take a consolation shot.
Marcus I sat in my car for an hour waiting for a rainbow. I had the scene all picked out but the clouds wouldn't part frown
Wave Rider I like that sheer drop in your first pic. Would love to see that waterfall in its entirety.

Ok my pics today are all of clouds. I 've always called them spaceship clouds for obvious reasons smile

A snowy Mount Murray, mid morning, on the Bimberi Range, from Baroomba Rocks, in the South of the ACT.

A beautiful spring morning. 6.0C, a cloudless sky and not even the slightest movement of the leaves. 10th Sept.



It is a rare day when there isn't a cold wind in the mountains of the Bimberi Wilderness at this time of year. Spring really starts about mid November here.

I think they're powerlines Eddy but not entirely sure. They had these weird ball things:



-------------------------------------------------------------

Here is the waterfall pretty much in its entirety Skys. The wasn't that much water falling thanks to the dryness lately and the water is very windblown. Quite cool in its own way guess. smile Rubbish pic though.

Those weird ball things are to make the powerlines visible to aircraft. smile

Nice lenticulars STL and a nice snow capped mountain Wassa, 6c at what time of the morning? Looks mid to late morning?
WR, Rubbish nah, I will still look at it smile In fact I will look at any picture regardless!!

I will have quite a few pics to post of todays adventures, but I will do it in stages.

This pic was taken on the first lake of the Myall Lakes, I had no intentions of taking a pic of this lake as its quite accessible, but as I was driving past and had seen how still it was, I couldn't resist!!

The Bimberri Wilderness looks a bit too rugged, cold and uninviting for me to ever want to visit Wassa. At least until it warms up. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for the waterfall shot Wave Rider. Those viewing platforms are sure handy things aren't they? Provided a whole busload of sight seeers don't all crowd on there at once.
Thanks for the pics Eddy. Is Boolambayte Lake usually that green or is that some sort of algal bloom?

I had a trip to Adelaide yesterday and stopped at Lochiel on the way home. This small town sits opposite Lake Bumbunga where salt has been mined for over a century. Water feeds into it through rainfall on the surrounding topography and the lake generally has pink coloration which is at odds with the surrounding countryside and can look quite spectacular at times. Situated on National Highway One its a popular photo stop for travellers. Some take things further and are compelled for some reason to wander out on the flats. As they sink in the mud they generally reconsider the wisdom of their decision. The group pictured spent a long time cleaning up. They also copped a rain shower before they made it back to shelter frown but hey they were happy smile

Thanks STL

No its normally clear and was on the day, although over the years it has been prone to blue-green algae. TBH I only see a little bit of green, I'm wondering if it was the polarizer I used or my poor editing skills, anyway I will rework it and see if I can get it out.

And great pics STL, judging by the tyre marks on the lake, how many cars get bogged??

Still looks greenish in the second one but more like a muddy green/brown.

I like your first pic in particular Eddy and STL, that's an interesting lake. Greats shots guys.
