Motorhome Travels - June 2014

11/05/2014

Wow - this has been a very busy month ... and we have covered more ground than ever!
Cleverville is one of our favorite fishing spots - it never fails to deliver. Our main target is the very tasty tusk fish, as well as being tasty, they are also smart and quite a challenge to spear. As you can see from the photos below, depite some less than ideal weather, we managed to catch a few nice fish and some crayfish.
As Cleverville is the last place we get into the water as we head north (crocs north of here), this fish will have to last us quite some time.

As well as the speargun, the quadcopter also got quite a work-out. The sunsets at Cleverville are amazing.

With freezers well stocked with fish, it was time to head north and into croc country.

My interest in photography seems to come and go. I have purchased a few new bits of gear to help take some photos that I have been thinking about for some time. Photos of star trails are not simple to take and I have never tried before. It requires a moonless night and a lot of planning. The Yule River bridge seemed perfect.

This is a photo of the Yule River bridge at night. The image is the result of combining over 200 exposures taken over about two hours. The red streak is the tail lights from a road train that crossed the bridge during one of those exposures. The trails are of course caused by the earth rotating producing the apparent movement in the stars.


At the DeGrey river crossing the quadcopter seemed to catch the attention of an unhappy kite. It decided that another bird should not be allowed to trespass un-challenged. I decided to back off as I felt the quadcopter may come off second best.

Our next stop was the Telegraph Pool on the Fitzroy River. Huge crocodiles, sea eagles, black kites and brown falcons.... next update very soon.


Ever wondered why are there Google Ads on the Hobohome Site?

It costs quite a bit of money each year to keep the Hobohome site running. We have decided to allow advertisements on selected pages of the site to help offset the costs involved in maintaining and hosting the Hobohome website.
