More of that sunrise.

A failed attempt at catching the well lit insects that were flying under the tree.

Many gravestones are in bad shape.

Stalactites and stalagmites in the Hasting Caves. 1 sec, no tripod (hand held!), syncro flash mode.

This was the culmination of the LCA charity auction held at the penguin dinner - Linus Torvalds shaved Bdale Garbee's beard as part of our fund-raising effort for the Save the Tasmanian Devil appeal. We raised about $40,000 to support these guys, who are desperately trying to find a solution to the devil facial tumour disease before the remaining population is driven to extinction.

This is the winning consortium in the Linux.conf.au charity auction at the Penguin dinner. Their bid was $10,500 - the final total isn't known yet (bidding got complicated!) but was in excess of $25,000. One consequence is that Linus Torvalds will be shaving Bdale Garbee's beard and hair before the conference ends.

 

The money raised is to be donated to the research foundation attempting to find a cure for the Tasmanian Devil facial tumour disease, which threatens the devil with extinction in the next 20-25 years.

Giant 2cm high surf. Kitten's eye view is fun. Kitten surfing also sounds like it could be fun. Strahan beach.
