#83,85,85, 2012- Charters Towers, northern Queensland

Settled in the mid 1800s Charters Towers is one of Australia's many inland towns established during the gold rush days. It was such a prosperous city that it even hosted a stock exchange, connected to the world via the telegraph. Today it still is a prosperous centre, this time via cattle with beef exports to the world
a) building for the bank of New South Wales - the largest in the country at that date

b) every town has its Town Hall, now the post office building

c) main street at night

Fuji x-s1; 2sec; 2x zoom

#86,87,88, 2015- after dark journey through a busy port

The city of Port Hedland in northern West Australia is one of the world's busy shipping hubs with thousands of bulk carrier ships coming and going annually. Mostly iron ore and various chemicals (not coal) it is an all-day / every-day operation. The Missions for Seamen operate a water taxi service for crewmen to come ashore and video link talk to families around the world. The water taxi also takes tourists, and here's images from their 9pm run taking seamen back to their ships

a) crewman waiting to transfer to his ship

b) alongside an empty ship, high in the water

panny G2; 1/15s; 2x zoom; ISO-1600

c) wider view of the loading area as the water-taxi traverses the port

#92,93,94, In images above I sometimes refer to 'our motorhome' and travels
We bought the vehicle back in 2004 and over the past 16yrs we have now clocked up 460,000km from around Oz. Most years we are on the road from 250 to 280 days of the year, but our 2020 travels have been curtailed by the C-19 lockdown. However Australia is now coming out of lockdown, so we're looking forward to being able to "hit the road" again soon

a) the motorhome- called R2D2 for 2-way radio calls


b) one of many reserves we stay at - this being Julia Creek in outback Queensland


c) we are not locked in to high-quality roads - we also cover large distances of gravel roads as well

#95,96,97, 2019- Dolphins, surfing, playing and enjoying themselves

Our local estuary and lake system hosts a wide variety of birds and water animals. We have an extended family of dolphins, probably 2-dozen or so in the group who are seen regularly in smaller pods as they surf the waves, jump and splash, and feed in the river outlet. Being a tidal river estuary, they gather near the exit when the waters of the estuary are rushing out to sea, and their feeding and surfing antics are a delight to watch from the rocky breakwall

a) surfing the waves

panny FZ-2500; 1/1600; 20x zoom

b) a juvenile cutting the surface between other antics

panny FZ-2500; 1/1600; 20x zoom

c) the juvenile a few moments later ...

panny FZ-2500; 1/1600; 20x zoom; 30fps burst in use
