You can't be talking about western Brisbane or Ipswich then. I remember some brutally freezing mornings there in the past

After you've been here a few years, 5 degrees is brutally freezing . . .


Cheers, Damien

Has anyone got the Sigma 150-600 C?

Still undecided on the Sigma and this lens. It looks like an amazing lens but not sure if 400mm is enough.. Camera is the 1Dx. Thanks for your thoughts.

Don't sell our brutal winters short, Kev. We normally get a couple of nights a year where it drops to 5, and even some days as low as 20 max. All degrees centigrade, of course. :-)


I'm a whingeing Pom mate, I don't even notice the cold :-) but this winter has been the warmest since records began

true, only 20ks West of Brizzy CBD and it can be up 10 degrees colder at night. I camp regularly in the hinterland and it's a world away in temps

Love these kookaburra, Kev. And just a reminder to MedicineMan, all the temperatures you guys are referring to are in Centigrade - he'll have a good laugh about that!

Interesting what we call warm and bone chilling, Winter time for me is just a touch colder. Still spending the entire day out shooting. And not far from me people are camping in this cold in normal pop up trailers and tents.... I'll stick to the day trip and back home by the fire lol

Can't laugh when I'm eaten up with jealousy ;)
At our cabin the coldest ever was in 1982, -32F which is -35 Celsius.
Because of elavation and the mountain isles theory I have the same trees Pondrader does.
We can drive to home in town and loose 3000 feet and 15 degrees.
We still (even at our age) get out even when -5F (our coldest yet) in the hammocks backpacking.
Over the years of spending several thousand miles in the backcountry I really won't worry when it is that cold-it's easy to stay
dry.
The most dangerous is when its between 32F and 45F with rain.
Hypothermia has no respect for young or old if they are foolish.
The other bonus of cold is the snakes are underground and the bears napping.

When I was a kid we lived in Oak Ridge for some years. Don't remember is being so cold in Oak Ridge, but got pretty damn cold in the Smokies!

Kooky came back today. Miserable skies (for a change) but you can't win 'em all :-)
