    [] Thankd Ben, yeah we have. Had some landslippage on the property and some driveway damage and will need to do some drainage work, but we and the house are all ok.

    Excellent sharp pano David!! Thats alot of water hey!!
    Your road is all ok then for you to get out & shoot this.

    [] 4wd Adam :)
    Sedans can parse, but I'd still be dubious. The only thing between getting out and vehicle damage is some sand shovelled into the gorges in the road.
    [] Thanks!

    Hells Bells... that sure is a LOT of water!! Thanks for sharing your recent flood-shots with us David... I've seen quite a few on the news... but somehow seeing photos taken by people that I (kindof) know... makes it a lot more real for me!

    [] Thanks Rodney. It was an opportunity too good to pass up.
    [] I'm sure I have some Kangaroo Point shots in my stream from normal conditions.
    [] :)
    [] Mud, debris, everything, the river is a dangerous place at the moment.
    [] Thanks Paul, glad it's appreciated. There's a lot of photos out there, but somehow taking them yourself is still important.
    [] Thanks!
    [] Yeah I saw that. I'm thinking there's more rain coming, but I guess it depends on how soon as to how much of an issue it becomes.
    [] Took a wee while to stitch, but worth it. 1.2Gb compressed TIFF in the end.
