Slight change of scene....

This fellow (girl?), a moray eel, was wrapped around a clump of coral just offshore from Heron Island on the southern Great Barrier Reef. He bared his teeth for this photo (I think) to protect his food (the green fish seen below him).



I'm still very much a newbie taking photos underwater (Canon PowerShot D20) - most are just blurs. But the scenery is spectacular... more photos over the next few days. And to complete the story, the water temp is a very balmy 27C (81F). I keep telling myself that work is making me do this :-)

Ah, sorry everyone, I haven't had the time to get the camera out, but here is a slightly older one I found on my computer. I found this little spot near the river after deciding to go a bit off my normal route, and I'm glad I did. Nearby is a wild waterbird reserve, where you can catch glimpses of some rare species (just don't take your dog!).

Martin, I love that photo but how big is that eel, looks pretty big in the photo.

Dan - looks lovely and peaceful there. Sort of place to just sit and contemplate on a hot day.

Copago - Wow - is that a private house?

Christmas decorations at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. The red ornament stood at least 6 feet tall.

Letting sparks fly.
Using a grinder while on-the-job. I wish I had had my real camera with me.

Anyone else having trouble with Photobucket. I never log out, but today it has logged me out and now won't recognise my user name to let me back in.

Not having that particular problem, Christinap, but I have a problem almost daily with Photobucket. Which is why I haven't been posting much lately. Hope you can get back in.

Try Flickr. You need a yahoo email address and it's limited to 200 photos for free accounts (but then you can just set up a new yahoo email address and start a new account.)

Lovely Christmas decorations everyone, and the frosted berries and cobwebs are the eco-friendly version of course!, and those sparks are fab, as is the bird.

I've been unimpressed with Christmas decorations around here. I liked the simple tree in front of the church best.

This was the last photo I took yesterday before it was too dark and the auto focus packed up



If anyone knows how to override the system on a Lumix camera so it focuses by eye rather than just giving up in low light I can get even longer before it gets completely dark. Normally you press the button and it does its thing before taking the photo, although you can press it immediately most of the time and it does exactly the same thing. But once it gets any darker than this it focuses for a moment and then lets it go completely nearly every go, but works again when it's completely dark.

Click share and BB code for 640 and copy the code over, and then probably remove the last two command lines as they just link back to it with text under the photo. I always used Photobucket till then as Flickr didn't have 640 sizes or sharing for some time.

Chris, great photo and I'm wishing for a tiny bit of that cool weather - it's very hot and humid here.

The head of the eel was the size of a large fist although the teeth still looked pretty menacing! After a consultation with my marine biology colleagues, it was identified as a Honeycomb Moray Eel.

That looks like it's straight of a Christmas card, Christina! Lovely.

those Christmas lights were on a house. It's a big thing here for people to have a bazillion lights on their houses. That particular one is on a street with lots of houses decorated .. out of twenty houses there was probably 14 done up. Hundreds of people wandering around looking and even a Mr Whippy can parked there selling ice creams lol.
