Photos from 23/4/2016 to 3/5/2016...
Most images were taken with a Canon SX60HS, 16MP, with a fantastic integrated zoom... and then resized down to 375x500 or 500x375 depending on portrait/landscape. No tripod was used, even with the photos of the moon. The only editing has been to resize, the placement of callsigns on the images as copyright, no colour or brightness adjustments have been made.
"Lone Pine" at Emily Bay in the distance, Nepean Island just to right of centre & Philip Island just at far right of image.
Unloading the typically 2 to 6-weekly cargo delivery using lighters at Kingston

A zoomed view from outside the back of the apartment. The tree about 1/4 of the way from RHS is highlighted below in some before/after sunrise images.
St Barnabus Church
St Barnabus Church
The font at St Barnabus Church
Inside St Barnabus Church, the shape of the roof front is shaped like the bow of an early vessel and the back is shaped just like the stern.
Only dowels were utilised in the construction of the roof itself, no nails or bolts etc
Before sunrise but with the sky lightening.
Getting closer to sunrise..
Before sunrise, at a fair zoom.. Tree is about 700-800m away.
Just as the sun rose. No optical or image adjustments, straight out of the camera.
A portion of the main street at the shopping area at Burnt Pine, at a quiet time without many cars....

Photo by Nev VK5XD (camera: Sony SLT-A55V) : clearer view of the traps on the antenna, top three are 14, 21, 28 MHz left to right, lower pair are 18 and 24 MHz left to right. The insulator at left is the end of the 10MHz dipole segment.
Photo on Nev VK5XD's camera : Nev VK5XD (LHS) and Doug VK9NU/VK4ADC (RHS) under part of the antenna.
The red trap above my left is for 7MHz, the insulator at the extreme right is the end of the 3.5MHz section.. Yes, it is almost down to the ground at the end. We won't talk about the golden orb spider "attached" to the 40m trap point, will we Nev ? Don't you love my safety footwear ?
Photo by Nev VK5XD : The gear as was set up. The box at RHS is the homebrew headset adapter, note the clip-on ferrite on the pink lead (mic) from the headset itself.. The piece of paper says Grid RG30xx23 and IOTA OC-005 in case someone asked !
Photo by Nev VK5XD : I suspect that Nev was impressed by the labelling on the homebrew headset adapter.... Note the ferrites on the leads at the back, 1 x clip-on on the RJ45-ended lead back to the 7000's 13-pin accessory plug and one toroid on the 3.5mm lead from the sound card output. The Icom hand mic is just seen dangling over the chair back at extreme right and wasn't used even once during the trip - it was headset from beginning to end. The grey figure 8 lead (the rear 3.5mm plug nearest the power supply/radio) goes to the PTT footswitch under the table.
In total, over 700 photos were taken during the trip to Norfolk so this is only a very small sample.....
