    Awesome set're blessed to have that as your office.

    Really like the two Mt Ossa shots...the second in particular is fantastic, I can see how it would be well worth the climb. Stunning Aussie landscape !

    Nice glow on the close flora shots....25Nokton I presume ? Dreamy.

    Shame about them mid-1930s vandals though eh...louts, and probably horse thieves to boot !

    They're all with the Nokton, it's all I've shot with for the last few months. The m.ZD 45/f1.8 arrived during my last trip though, so I'll be shooting with that on my next one :smile:

    I doubt they were horse thieves, given that there aren't any horses to thieve :wink: They would have either been bushwalkers or perhaps fur trappers. The hut was originally built for prospectors, but that was finished by '33.

    Great shots, Nick.

    What's the weather year-round in that area?

    I wish to visit there down under before I hit the big six-0.

    Nice set, thanks!
    Figured out what a "punter' was via the photo.

    I envy your 'work'! Nice photos too, though I must admit it's a somewhat odd use for the Nokton (as a walkaround lens).

    Thanks :smile: I've found the Nokton to be an excellent walkaround lens!
