Over the New England area of NSW.

Taken from the car as we drove home to Qld at approx. 100kph. (I wasn't driving at the time, in case you were wondering).

    Yeah it might benefit from that RH, will have to have a puddle...

    Thanks Horst, didn't turn out too bad given the conditions.

    I tried a couple of times to get this shot Mark, the first on ended up with a silhouette of a street sign covering the sun, the next one with trees all over the frame, then I finally got a short clearing and got this one looking back a bit from the car.

    Thanks Kev, 'twas a mostly uneventful trip (well apart from the 2hr unscheduled stop in Armidale).
