    It's made from galvanised steel tubing and is as slick as shit when wet!

    This must be a recent inclusion in the area? I've been down there several times, the last being March 2011 and have never seen such a Wallace and Gromit thingy. It looks like a bike rack on first glance. Cross on it? Maybe one can side-step holding onto the the top rail? Dunno about juggling tripod, boxes, portmanteaux and bags AND having to hold a grip... Boots is right: somebody ought to pack a video to capture the spills and thrills. PS: Not me.

    Yes, the weather is shaping up to be perfect for an excursion into the woods, a little damp, a little light and next to no breeze.

    Marc, organise a pic on the day to send to Sean here on APUG: we might get good publicity (and a free roll of film!?) for being the biggest Australian APUG song and dance.

    Picture perfect conditions, like John Meier's little gem,
    reproduced here from THE RAINFOREST: Spirit of the Land (1993).

    Imagine how beautiful this scene would be if it snowed lightly, as it often does during winter in Noojee.

    Joachim, John M. is known to have used a Pentax 67 for mid-1980s to early 1990 images; this is probably one of them (I have a 55mm and 165mm lens and will chance my luck).

    I keep my eyes open for this book. Looks very interesting. I guess we will have quite a P67 gathering at the falls this weekend. We should arrange a group picture. The camera always has been very popular with landscape photographers. Robert Glenn Ketchum is another great example.

    I picked up the book from Beach Books at Barwon Heads in 1998. The photographs are accompanied by some timeless poems and verse by Australian bush poets and balladeers, and most of the time the writing compliments the photographs. Other photographers of note in the book are Philip Quirk, Grenville Turner, Peter Jarver and Richard Glover. The ISBN is 0 207 18922 6. I think it is out of print.

    Thanks for the ISBN. I just ordered the book 2nd hand from NSW. So far I always liked the books you mentioned here (in particular 'Simply' by Peter Dombrovskis).
