Nothing so dramatic from me. Been a little fog about the place in recent days ...

Beautiful fog pictures Skysthelimit.

Here is a view of the Hawkesbury River North of Sydney yesterday on a rather damp Winter's day:

Yeah nice pics Steve and STL.

Some photos a Southern Tablelands road drive I did yesterday:

Beautiful views just outside of Laggan.



Looking south between Crookwell and Gunning towards the lower country.



A little creek on the north side of Gunning.



Looking towards Cullerin Range just outside of Gunning.



Near Breadalbane, looking east towards Goulburn.

Lovely shots Reilly smile

I especially like the creek - it looks like a lovely little spot for yabbies in the summer smile

Very similar feel to around the Central Tablelands. smile

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 14/06/2017 13:23

Thanks Dave, the tablelands are so nice. Makes me want to live out in the country!!

There's actually a free campground there on that creek but two day limit. I would seriously consider camping there one day.

Thanks for sharing Steve, Wave Rider and Eddy. Three more from me. Sometimes I like a sky and I go looking for a scene to enhance it as in pic 1 overlooking Gladstone. The other 2 are of fog near Jamestown.

Thanks Dave, Ronfishes, young Werner, Eddy and Wave Rider. Like the way you capture the hues in the skies Eddy. They can certainly add to a picture smile
Things are looking grim for the farmers here in SA unless things improve. Adelaide has just recorded its second driest June rainfall on record. We scored 10mm here a couple of days back but we need a real soaking. At least it showed it can rain. These pics taken from the Laura to Beetaloo Valley road.

Nice foggy shots STL.

I finally got a half decent sunset yesterday with plenty of colour that was worth shooting.

Went down to the central coast this week, which is where the first shot was taken. Its not as magic as Eddy's coastal shots, but its a beautiful area down there.


Yesterday I also saw some fallstreak holes, which are reasonably rare I think

Great shots Rainiac, the cloud ones are really cool!!

And of course, nice pics Eddy and STL.

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 13/07/2017 12:19

Hey Rainiac - the first one, the Ocean water pool at The Entrance beach? Although the pool is not in the shot smile

Nicely done smile

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 13/07/2017 16:29

Thankyou Wave Rider and Dave. And yea Dave, thats exactly where I took it, just a couple of blocks down, where I was staying. You did very well picking that up seeing you live in Bathurst!
Posted by: DaveM

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 14/07/2017 09:09

My wife is from North Entrance.

I lived there for several years as well, much of my family live or lived there too. We visit a few times a year.

I have a weird brain that remembers specific things/shapes for decades and I can very often place things on little info. Shame I can't make money out of it smile Useless at everything else smile

Wow it looks even better as a bigger size. I can honestly say that is the nicest photo I have seen this year. And absolutely my favourite photo from you. There is something truly special about this shot.

I totally agree with Dave, it would look so good on a wall!! smile

PS: Just realised that we can't see any of STL or Warren's pics any more. frown That is just disgraceful what Photobucket have done. I'm just thankful I never used it but we have literally lost years of photos now. frown

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 17/07/2017 17:33

I'll join the chorus Eddy and compliment you on a lovely pic. You can always tell a good pic by the amount of time you spend looking at it smile

Regarding Photobucket. I agree Wave Rider its disgraceful and I think I'm in a state of shock. I don't have that sort of money laying around. Don't know what to do now. Count my losses and try a new start elsewhere. Pity they didn't give us a months grace to retrieve our photos first! frown
Posted by: EddyG

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 17/07/2017 22:30

Thanks STL

As for photobucket I stopped using it a couple of years ago, I was losing too much detail in my images, photos were coming out flat looking and not sharp at all, I started using Flickr and haven't looked backed.
Anyhow I probably lost about 500 photos, fortunately for me I have them somewhere on an old computer!!

What has photobucket done?

I rarely go in there

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 20/07/2017 12:29

They quietly introduced a $399 per year charge on third party hosting as of the 20th June, which is why you see the notices on Eddy's and STL's signatures.
Posted by: DaveM

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 20/07/2017 12:35

So if you want to share any images on another site it costs $400 smackers? Bit Rude.

I agree Eddy, perfect day to check out the beach and I did too. Love the second pic and the tops of the trees blowing from the wind looks cool as well.

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 13/08/2017 19:59

Thank you Eddie for your locality's Winter images. Winter where you are looks glorious ... as opposed to being here.

I'm still waiting for my camera to thaw out before I post.

Cheers Mate.

Warren.

PS, It snowed a few days ago on the high ranges of the ACT and the snow is still there. It looks really cool.

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 14/08/2017 11:24

Nice to hear from you Wassa. I was beginning to wonder what had happened to you. I hope you can get out in the elements again soon. I wish we'd get some snow. Its the one subject that continues to elude my camera and I.
Thanks Eddy for your pictures. You've been somewhat of a lone hand on this thread of late.
My first pic is of something I spotted a fortnight or so ago. Looking straight up I saw whist appeared to be an upside down rainbow. In the picture the sun is actually below the 'arc' unlike a halo. I had intended to quiz everyone to see if anyone could tell me what it was exactly but then I watched a tv documentary and they covered , amongst other things, CIRCUMZENITHAL ARCs, which is what this is of course. Now we're all in the know.
The second pic is a scene taken from the dry weather road which leads into our neighbouring town of Georgetown. I know the person who lives there is a regular reader of the forums so I thought he might get a surprise when he sees it smile

Thanks Wild Wassa, I look forward to your spring pics!

STL you have an awesome landscape to shoot, those rolling hills are just magnificent, I could only imagine what those hills look like in a fading sunset?

Eddy, please enjoy a few of my Winter images before Spring arrives.

I joined Flickr yesterday, after not appreciating Photobucket ripping-off and ransoming members' images.

The average temp this season has been 1.6C below average, in the SE of NSW which might account for the unusually large flocks of Sulphur Crested Cockatoos wintering in the Yass Valley rather than enduring Winter on the Monaro as they usually do.

My long-time friend Reg, looking sleek and cool, during last Autumn when it was unseasonably warm and Reg lofting his down this Winter.

There have been a few light snow falls on the hills above the Murrumbidgee River, this August.

The Tidbinbilla Range, ACT.



The Baldy Range, NSW.



The Blue Range and Brindabella Range, ACT/NSW Border.

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 20/08/2017 19:28

Mother Nature and I jousted this month. She teased me with beautifully mild weather, while I prepared the ground to build a deck. Then, when I thought I was enjoying her company, and her mine, She did here worst.

Overnight temps of -7.0C, -8.6C and -11.0C amongst others. Each morning I'd sweep the frost off.



Then when I'd almost finished sweeping the frost off, it was reforming. So, I would then start again.



The morning of the -8.6C there was no sweeping.



On the nights that it rained, when the rain stopped, I swapped sweeping for ice skating.

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 21/08/2017 10:35

I love those pics Wassa, great stuff. You've certainly had some cold mornings.

I have snow pics from the Oberon Plateau taken on Saturday.

Haven't posted anything in ages so thought I'd chuck this up. Too many nice photographs to mention, that very first image Eddy is a beauty, incredible 3D look to that cloud.

Rather envious of the snow pics, hasn't been the most interesting winter here.
Posted by: Wild Wassa

Re: Winter Weather Images 2017 - 31/08/2017 05:52

Guys and Gals, Winter looks most beautiful in your necks of the bush and your photography equally amazing.

Cold Front, on Sunday 27th of August, it was cold. You would have loved it. You know the old cliche, several seasons in a day? ... well on Sunday it wasn't. It was the depth of winter. The day had frost, sheets of ice, rain, hail, sleet and it also snowed. All enhanced by a bitter wind straight off the Alps.

At the Canberra Airport the minimum reading overnight on the 27th was (IIRC) -1.5C. I'm guessing the heat from the city kept Canberra Airport warm.

Some shots from Sunday 27th ... from the deck of death.





My outside thermometer stopped working on Sunday ... it died from hypothermia.
