This balancing rock near Canberra is hard to get to now, with all the regrowth form the 2004 bushfires. Many places that are photogenic are darned near impossible to get to!

However, being very close to the road, it's not too bad to fight your way through the scrub and try to find a place to put the tripod down.

It's so peaceful being alone in the dark out bush. I feel safer out there than in the suburbs and very much at home. While the camera does it's job, it's a time of reflection and uninterrupted thought away from the distractions of civilisation.

Looking up, one's world and it's problems shrink away to nothing as your mind reaches outwards to infinity and all it's possibilities.

How long was the exposure on those?


I agree, Nothing quite like going out into the middle of nowhere and star at the stars for as long as your eyes will stay open :-) It really fuels the imagination.

This hobby is pretty awesome :-)
