These pics were taken on the 9th July 2006 at a car park just up the road from my house. I had a nice drive on Mt Dandenong Tourist Road, was a good run through all the twisties and hair pins :D It then became extremely foggy, so I took the opportunity to take some photos. I’m far from a professional photographer, I basically just point and shoot, so the pictures came up a little grainier than I would have liked.

Update 16/12/2007: The ol’ girl had taken a bit of a battering from birds and their pooping all over the paint, so on a nice sunny day a couple of days ago, I washed the car and decided to take more pics.
