    Hi All

    well for the past 4 nights this comet has been lighting up our skies and it looked amazing.

    article: http://www.smh.com.au/news/National...-over-Australia/2007/01/12/1168105173540.html

    tonight me and a work mate drove up the flinders ranges (big mountaneous reserve in south australia) to take some pics.

    under every pic is a highres link to save as or click to open, these pics are 1024x768 resizes. The large ones would make great wallpapers! The hires ones are either 6.3 mpixel (Fuji) or 4mpixel (Nikon)


    for starters, the sunset as seen by Naperby; South Australia

    very cool moon pictures!!

    the comet is neat, too but I'm sure it's not capturing what it's like to actually see it

    Damn, moon shots with a P&S? Damn damn!

    When is Hale Bopp coming by again, like 2060 or something? If I'm still alive, I'll sit out for a few nights straight capturing pictures. That was an absolutely amazing sight to see on a clear night.
