    I'll have to go up there for sunset one day with some pretty serious graduated ND filters.
    Thanks :)

    Ah nice its a great lookout would indeed be a good sunset location.
  • David de Groot said:
    Indeed it would. Tough location with all that dark foliage in the lower part of the frame though.
    The drive back after dark would be interesting too ;-)

    David, I wouldn't mind checking this place out. Do you know if they allow mountain bikes in this part of Mt Mee? (Some parts are 4wd only)
  • David de Groot said:
    @Neil - I know there's a walking trail to that location so presumably you can MB there too.
  • accesser said:
    Not sure if its allowed but I've come across bikes plenty of times the walk is pretty good also.
    yes getting back in the dark would be a problem I want a map of all the tracks to work out if its possible to get to the lookout without such a long drive, I should ask my old man if the local fire station has any info on the tracks.
