Spring love jostle! Went for 15 minutes. The male goanna gets very toey(sexual) when the weather starts to warm up in Spring. Some of the males are 5 or 6 ft long, and can be quite intimidating. The male was holding the female goanna down with its claws and jaws. The claws on them have to be seen to be believed and their leg muscles rival big Arnnies. They can get up a tall tree in under a second and will charge you if you have food and they are hungry/grumpy. This all evolved from foolish campers that feed them.
Ha, I liked the effect of the droplets too, thanks.

Regards
Peter

Radio control W60

This can be used for dig cameras, for those inclined towards radio control like myself. Planes, boats - near any application. FYI.

SPT200 Pan & Tilt System

This is my bicycle I ride around the Australian outback.
You can see the performance Shimano gear and derailer system. 50 speed it is, and fast. Shot in a foam box too, thus dots of broccoli and assorted veges.

Thanks for the info.

I also like the Pulput rock shot, and how did you get so close to that whale ?

Fine pictures, you should frame the one with the water droplets. Thatís a keeper

Thanks again. The rock ledges in the area are a meca for land based fishing. That particular ledge, the Pulpit, drops into nearly 10 fathoms of water. The whale was only 80-100m from the shore, heading south this time of year. I had the W60 in my pocket and did my best to get a few pics. Once, just a friend and I were fishing, and a pod of whales gave us a private show for 1.5hrs. They were breaching and fin slapping, making a hell of a racket. I had tears in my eye from joy.
You could say, it is the southern whale highway.

I played with a few images using the ACDsee software that comes with the W60. Added shine to water in the beach shot. Rock shots just sharpened. I do like the grainy look on the rocks though?
Please comment if you wish, thanks.

Pic of the boy trying to be removed by his mum from my bike. Note finger grip on tank. Not happy mate.

Wow that must really be an amazing sight. Hope to see something like that one day.
And thanks for your drawing

The Greencape rocks look great, could have been taken with a DSLR.

I really like the Greenglades beach shot, and the cropped format works very well.

When land based fishing, at the right time, we see heaps of whales. If we get a whale show, it is a bonus.
Please believe me when I say grown men cry at the sight, like me.
At the time I write this electronic message here, the $AU would be worth 50c mate?

Book your holiday now.
