Wentworth Falls is less touristed and therefore more interesting than Katoomba/Echo Point. In this image you can
see a group of people standing at the top of the falls, some more swimming at the bottom, and a few looking out on the lookout
near the top centre.

Hidden in the far range, centre of photograph, is a large dam which is surprisingly full of water. You can see it on Google Earth or Google Local. The black ridge is an outcrop
of mineral which looks 'geologically interesting' to this layman.

A beautiful tree as seen from flat on your back on the Canberra Yacht Club lawns.
Given that the sun is behind the tree at the top left, see if you can work out the lighting. How does the sun get onto the front of the tree trunk and the other trees at the bottom?

Cockington Green gardens in winter, the maze, small things and other illusions.
[EOS300D, about 9 vertical format shots]

Cockington Green is one of Canberra's treasures, often dismissed as (only) a twee kiddies attraction. In fact it has
superb, technically interesting gardens as well as an unusual collection of miniature replicas of famous buildings and
landmarks. Most of these were funded or provided by local diplomatic missions -- see here for some examples.

  Also see a page of panoramas showing landscapes around Canberra commissioned by Greening Australia to assist with monitoring and evaluation of bushfire reconstruction work.
  Several other photos on these pages are simple 2-shot panoramas - my solution to not having an extra wide angle lens. The Cornish village, the vertical smoke column, the sheep in the sunset and Sibu port are all 'panoramic' composites comprising 2 images joined.
