Our last night in Melbourne, and a few nasty thunderclouds had gathered over the city centre. We didn’t have to wait long to get some thunderstorms.
Fortunately, another resident at the hostel had a tripod, which I nabbed to get this shot (thanks Eric). I reckon he got some rather good lightening shots by the end of the night.
In other news, my shot of the Peoples Palace has just been published in the Evening Times (wahoo, fame at LAST!). Well, it was nice to see my name in print, I suppose.
We’ve just arrived in Byron Bay. After some initial confusion over the timezones we’re right at home (standing outside the bank at “4:30pm” and cursing them for closing early – after asking a rather bemused stranger the time we realised we’d got a bit confused, it was 5:30!).
In our defense… we flew into Brisbane, and our helpful and chatty pilot told us the new time. We then got a bus to Byron Bay, and our sullen and grumpy bus driver (4 hr journey, 5 words spoken, sitting behind him, only passengers on the minibus and no radio!) didn’t bother to say we’d crossed into another timezone!
