I have just returned from a few days on top of the world at Mt Hotham and have included a few of my favorite photos.
Part way through last year I finally bought a digital camera, I'd been swinging between an slr and a small camera for over two years. I had a small polaroid digital of 1.3 Mega pixels which I mostly use for taking happy snaps to go on my website but wanted something better. I settled for something in between which was recommended by a friend who does a lot of photography. I've got a Panasonic Lumix with 10 megapixels and 12 x optical zoom this is the first time I've had a really good play with it and I was very impressed. I got some great photos of the many wildflowers
a couple of good ones of birds that were tiny and not that close,
a sunset, a storm and a misty night
and of course the beautiful scenery.
There was lots of evidence of the bushfires from 2003, many of the snow gums have yet to recover, some are just sprouting from the base of the old trees. Everywhere you look you can see dead trees and you can see just how close the fires got to the lodges.
