Ho! Ho! Ho! you've got one up on me - have you.vmad

You are right though - What's our option? You lot down under are consuming all of our sunshine.:-)
If we go 100% nuclear we will have a waste disposal problem, we could ship it to OZ or launch it into outer-space - 'To infinity and beyond'
We have huge off-shore wind farms. Perhaps we could make more use of tidal flow systems - at least the tides are predictable.

I took this picture a couple of days ago, it is about five miles out in the Thames estuary off Margate. Funnily, it is normally barely visible due to mist, heat haze and generally murky weather, but always appears when capturing shipping pics in that part of the estuary. I took a series of this location - there are lots of 'em.

Wouldn't want to be a seabird dodging those spinning arms, would you. It is an issue though. There are more and more of us consuming more and more electricity. Right now I'd give you as much sunshine as you want. We've had a heat wave (inland from Darwin) for the last two weeks, 39-42C. I'm sick of it (literally--I am about to have surgery to remove skin cancers from too much exposure to it) and have had no rain since April. Just hanging' out for the wet season but we have at least a week more of this stinking devil's armpit weather to look forward to.

On the left hand side of the bridge you can see Dartford's Littlebrook Power Station - now awaiting demolition like most other power stations around here - a decision we may live to regret. The image is taken from the East looking West.

Never mind Ray, I'm sure they'll build you some shiny new solar power stations to replace it! Oh, that's right, they don't work too well over there.:)

There's seems to be a lot of hot air, you could harness that :-)

I do like that composite photo. Very nice bridge.

Thanks for the offer of some of your sunshine, very generous of you. But putting that into degrees F = 102F - 107F. For scientific calculations I had to use deg C automatically, but when at home I have to refer to a Fahrenheit thermometer to see how warm it is :-). (Blast this Europeanisation, we'll soon be driving on the right side of the road with speed measured in km/h if Brexit fails) Perhaps I should stop moaning about our climate. Sorry to hear your problem Pippan, I do hope all goes well for you.

Thanks for the comment on the bridge Richard, I'm sorry that the water looks so murky in the picture, that's because it is murky, probably due to all the B.S being washed down from our seat of parliament 20 miles upstream at Westminster, as usual.-?

This Summer while the sun was as far north as it was going to get is the only time of the year for this point of view.

Both of these images were shot at 700mm using my Nikkor 500 f4 with 1.4 converter.

This size does not show the detail in this image shot with the RF 24-240. It is best viewed in the glasses preview button or better at full res by following the link.

Amazing root system.
Very nicely photographed.

Does the tree grow lke that? I'm assuming it's not soil erosion.

Thank you!

This is on the banks of the Big Cypress Bayou right below a dam. It is flooded most of the time so erosion has exposed the normal root system. On dry land many cypress trees have knees that will come up out of the ground. Not all cypress trees develop knees though.

This is a little unorthodox for my typical shots of water, but I thought the view through the trees was both unique and pretty.
