Hey Y'all, newbie here though id just sharing some snaps from a couple weeks up on the Ningaloo coast. Fair bit of crappy weather but made the most of the good weather days.

We did vast majority of driving through night due to bub and other reasons ... was like driving through Noah's arc the amount of bulls, roos, emus, sheep, foxes, cats, dogs, rabbits and weird salt bushes that start to resemble aliens.

The young lad did us proud and put up with some seriously long hours in the saddle.

And this is the 2012 one

-- 3 weeks, 3000 odd km's, a ton of touring ... 33 - 36c blue sky & calm day after day, bloody great trip to Ningaloo region. (Ningaloo Reef coast (Coral Bay, Exmouth, Ningaloo station, Outer Reefs, Warorra station, cape range national park, Exmouth US navy pier ... and other places in between))

ha ha yeah the photo above it (my mrs) was her first time hunting occy ... that was the split second she'd first been inked and was absolutely priceless. Was a sheer moment of "WTF?!?" ... and about an hour later realised she'd wrecked her clothes with the ink (collateral damage!)

Hi bud , above ground is a Nikon d90 with a couple of different lenses , primarily an 18-105 nikkor. Always use a polarizer in day time (and choose good times to use it). Tripod at night obviously

Under water is mixture of an Olympus with housing and a Nikon d70 with housing (not mine tho belonged to chick was diving with, dual strobes n all , great kit)
