    How high is it BTW?
    The base of the towers is about 600m (2000 feet ish) the first photo was taken from along the street from my place which is about 500m.
    Mt Dandenong is part of the rim of an extinct volcano (extinct millions of years). From the top on a clear day you can see other hills that are over 100km (60 miles) away in a straight line.

    That's seven shots in HDR Efex Pro hence the tripod. Anyway it's only 200 metres along the road to get the view. We can't see this because of the trees.

    Rooz; I do.
    Most of what we see here is coastal areas, films based in the 'outback', or cities. NY is not all hills, though most of upstate NY is. There are many valley lakes,ie; the Finger lakes area and two of the great lakes form our North-Northwest boundaries with Canada, the Southern shore of Lake Ontario and a bit of Lake Erie on the extreme Western end of the state.

    Actually if you turn Australia upside down... It sort of resembles the US. Although I think the Sierras might be a little taller than Mount Kosciuszko.

    Seems like you all live on the hilly side.

    Many NBA players are taller than Mt Kozciuszko.

    Odd Couple

    Caught this pair of Groundhogs on a recent riverwalk. (walkabout to you aussies. )
    It is unusual to find them in pairs like this. They tend to den up singly.

    Very nice shot Falcon. That deserves to be an 11x17 print.

    One of these days I will save enough money to get a decent 70-300. The old Nikkor (ca. 1996) works ok, but the D7000 seems to be a tad better than the lens.
