    yeah.. v likely i'll be there (provided there is no last minute hiccups with work). was there last year as well.
    If its the same venue as last year then its in some winery. Nice scenery as well.

    I will most likely be at Dockland for the launch as well... maybe we can organise a shooting / kopi gathering then?

    Golgotha.... the track is pretty much open.. u can get quite close up shots. Last time round i shot using 18-55 kit lens for most of the pics.

    RuthBaby.. yeah Feb is summer.. the only thing is how hot its going to get and how much bush flies you gonna attract ...
    Couple of my friend do the drive up to Brisbane the other time as well and we stopped by Sydney. Better have a couple of drivers along the way. Go along the coastal route for more scenic stuff.
    Its more economical not to drive within Sydney as the parking is pretty expensive.

    If you are using your own car, better get a skirting for your bumper or you'd be scrapping flies off it....

    Yes, better to be safe than sorry. The coastal route, though longer should be more interesting. Its about 15 hours from Mel to Syd. In land route is easy..... about 12 hours.

    It was a pleasure to have met you today.

    Just to be sure, what lens (focal lengths) were you using to shoot these images? I want to be sure that we can get close enough not to require super telephoto.

    using mostly the canon kit lens 18-55mm
    i did bring along the 75-300 but did not use it much..

    the blue ford focus is shot at 49mm...
