Today's ABC Open photos

The sandstone arches of Richmond Bridge
By shelleaman ·  · From Pic of the Week

This bridge was built by convict labour in 1825 and it is the oldest bridge that is still in use in Australia today.  This evening the banks of the Coal River made a picture-perfect romantic picnic spot for many couples celebrating Valentine's Day.                         Published 15 Feb 2017.  Hobart TAS 7000

2.00 am start

So, I set my alarm for 2.30am to capture the Milky Way. I woke up half an hour early and looked out my window to see the moon in the direction of the Milky Way, which I didn't plan for. Lucky for me it was only a waning crescent.  I jumped in my cruiser, drove five minutes to the beach and had it all to myself.  With the cloud to the right of the over-exposed moon it actually looks like a comet stopped in time.                                   Published 17 Feb 2017.  Kingscliff NSW 2487

A gorgeous Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat grazing in the magical golden hour at Brookfield Conservation Park. These creatures are so special, as is the Mallee landscape - I'm counting down the days until April when I'm heading back there to assist my Dad with a wombat DNA study he has helped organised!                     Published 16 Feb 2017  Mallee NSW 2738
