    Hmm maybe, from memory there's a piece of legislation in parliament at the moment to put on hold any future fracking projects so this could simply be a good news story to sway public opinion the other way.

    I would be concerned about the effect that such a large operation (assuming it's even vaguely like the size that they are talking in the press) would have on the Great Artesian Basin which isn't all that far away.

    Took some photos at a dress rehearsal of a stage play the other day. The stage lighting was 'moody' and multicoloured, which made for some 'interesting' effects to say the least. This one was taken with a D7000 and 18-200VR; 1/125s at f/5.6; auto ISO 3600; 170mm focal length (255mm in 35mm equivalent); tungsten white balance.

    The whole point of bringing up the oil thing was to get some photos of the area "pre-boom" (if there is one). This is also the opal capitol of the world as well. Might be interesting, but understand it is several hundred miles from some of you. Kinda like me going to Mt. Shasta.

    D70;
    Nice pic of Mt. Shasta. How far is that away? I'd guess 20-30+ miles. Hard to be sure without knowing it's height from the plain.

    I think that you are getting way to excited about the prospect for substantial change in the landscape. Even if the find is real it would be 10 years before anything major happens on the ground by the time people get funding in place then environmental and legislative approvals the access infrastructure the facilities for workers, etc.
    In terms of distance its over 1600km each way from my place and after the first 150km or so I suspect I could travel the rest of the way without going through a traffic light controlled intersection. It's not a quick drive even straight there and back flat out would be a 2 1/2 days driving and I for one won't be accepting your suggestion thanks.

    Here's another shot from the stage play, this time illustrating the 'interesting' (read frustrating!) effects of multicoloured lighting. The actress on the right is bathed completely in blue light and thus is ghost-like in appearance; the actor on the left catches some blue but is mostly lit by a white spot from above, so he appears more 'normal'. To the eye the contrast between the two forms of lighting is not so marked, but the poor old sensor on my D7000 got really confused! Auto ISO bumped the sensitivity up to 6400 to compensate for the dim lighting.

    So I'm guessing Sir Les that all your shots are now black and whites
