Fancy chatting about something else? This is the place, but keep it related to photography and avoid religion and politics please!

Maybe best to break this off into another thread, but I don't believe forums are a dying species. Just this particular forum has lost momentum and I don't see any attempt to revive it. Social media is a different interaction interface. If you've ever tried to use groups on facebook for example, you'll quickly see it doesn't work well for a discussion format like a forum. And twitter is even worse! Of course, it wasn't designed as such and can be more effective used in a different way.

While I'm in this thread, have this pic taken earlier this evening:

Not my best work and I'm not happy with it, but I took too long setting up and cloud killed my chances to refine it. I was simultaneous trying to get the moon with earthshine on it, as well as Venus and Mars nearby. Forecasts suggest there may be more clear skies tomorrow night although they wont be as close together then, and may make better separate subjects.

From yesterday, I went to Burleigh Heads to try capture some waves generated by the cyclone, shot around 80 but no keepers. The water was dirty with the swell and heavy rain was falling. This bush turkey who came out for a feed was the only one worth keeping.

Got this shot from our local paper showing the Snapper Rocks Super Bank.

Thanks, I thought to check back. Looks like this forum is in a post-mortem state :(

It's a bit thin, that's for sure. Perhaps it will pick up a bit as the weather improves in the northern half of the planet.

It’s hard work at Burleigh Heads when 29c. If members posted it would not be so quite.

Breaking the enclosure apart and getting dust everywhere is one way to protect your data from theft! :P

I only had my 500D with me but that's better than nothing. ;) I'm a firefighter myself but this time I just drove by when I brought a friend back home. Fire can be quite destructive. As far as I heard nobody was hurt.
