Spook,
nice work mate, hope you came out of it with all gear and life intact.
I have been an underwater photographer for thirty years. I love the spontaneous photos like this.
What was this taken with? GoPro?

Great shot Spook. Now that will take some beating.

Phillip Island, Victoria - scrubs up pretty well, eh? :-)

Utterly off-topic, but linked to Phillip Island. Family friends used to own Churchill Island, and to celebrate NYE, my dad and friends used to fire a 4 inch cannon from the Confederate Navy ship Shanendoah into Westernport Bay. (Fishing on that night was not recommended!). The ball was propelled by an authentic load of black powder, but the volume varied from year to year...

After!
The shockwave shook the camera on its tripod with spectacular results.
(Churchill Island is now owned by the National Trust, and is well worth a visit)

Well peoples, there are only a few weekends to go before our competition draws to a close for 2013.

It's surprising, the prize pool has doubled this year, and there are less entries ???? Go figure.

Perhaps many of our new members don't realise the competition exists so I'll bump the thread back to the the top one last time.

Here are a couple of past competition threads to give you some inspiration. Be careful though, creative juices can stain and are hard to clean off polyurethane. :shock:

Best of luck ya-all.

I was going to wait until the deadline (swooping in for the kill) but I figured I'd give all of you a fair chance to get out at the last minute and better these :wink:

Really like that 1st shot Alan. Very arty. It reminds me of a vision I had when Me, Ringo, John and Paul were writing the St Peppers album. 8) :roll:

Was that when the Fab5 coined the phrase Puff, PPuff, PPPuff, Cough, Pass ?!?!?

Here's the un-cropped version of that pic for those that can't "see" it

Image

That pic, and the parking lot one were taken on top of Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park in Maine at sunrise - the unique point of USA soil where the mornings' first rays hit the land first every day. I liked the parking lot shot as those first rays lit up the AI's but not my truck

... as long as I'm posting the photo's from my Maine/New Hampshire trip I might as well post the rest that didn't make the top3 cut. Since I didn't have a waterproof camera and needed a different theme than the brutal on-water action shots, I chose the childrens book (and subsequent following phenom) "Flat Stanely" highlighting the Hobies and my truck whenever possible (and of course my Lovely Wife when she was cooperative :wink: )

That sure is one serious roof rack you have there Alan. Would you mind throwing a tape measure over it and giving me a centre distance from the front support to the rear support. I need to upgrade my roof setup for trips where ferries are involved. Ferries down this way charge a fortune for trailers. I'm trying to get my head around how it's all connected to the car. What's the red bit ? ( that wasn't in my vision! )
