    William. To "work out" the UT(C) or GMT times, just add 10 hours to get AEST, Aust East Std Time.

    Here is a site that is shows current to UTC or GMT. I use it to set my camera times to exact AEST.
    http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/
    (Note that in London now they are 1 hour ahead of GMT as they have daylight saving.)
    Am. (Should be Pm?)
    CC, Image editing OK.

    Very nice, as is that shot by axle01.

    I am beavering away between scudding clouds, as in:

    "I love a rain-soaked Sydney,
    A land of scudding clouds,
    Of sudden heavy downpours,
    Of wind and constant..."

    Well, that sort of thing.

    Tell ya what though: I'm really liking this Baader film as a filter.

    For now, m.
