Mountains surround Canberra. This photo is made on the way to the coast.
I started driving around the area on the weekends. This is on the way to the Cotter Dam.
Trees are starting to turn yellow or red.
a bunch of dead trees further on the way.
Deep Space Communication Complex
This complex was part of many important NASA missions like the landing on the moon. It houses some of the largest readio telescopes in the world.
With 70m the DSS-43 is the widest steerable antenna in the southern hemisphere.
It weights 3000 tonnes and the reflector accuracy is less than 0.5 mm.
a 3.8 billion years old rock from the moon.
Sitting in the caffee begging for food.
On the way to Corin Dam.
passing by this waterfall. I forgot the name of it. Not very big anyway but nice.
Just before sunset.
During the days it is sunny most of the times and gets up to 20 degrees. When the sun goes down it can be down to zero or below in the early morning.
The road over Corin Dam called Corin Road. You figure!
Mountains on the way back. I might be quite high here. At least for Australia.
A pretty little trainstation near Bungendore.
I wish they would build a high speed train system between Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne. There are plans but like a lot of things here in Australia they gonna take a very long time.
No idea how these guys got there.
