Wildlife & Scenic pictures taken while detecting
« on: July 01, 2015, 09:20 »
Seems we have quite a few avid photographers here on the Forum!

Thought it'd be a good idea to have a dedicated thread to post up photos of wildlife or scenery taken while out detecting.  We've got members from every nook & cranny of Australia so there should be some great diversity.

Hopefully 'ontherun' will kick it off with his brilliant picture of the Tiger snake.

Happy snapping

All taken whilst out detecting, and no the last one isnt setup, but it did give me a chuckle to find it at the time.

Great Lake Tasmania.Was detecting here yesterday and got hailed on.  Unfortunately only cans and bottle tops but  with being about 32ks long there is the odd bit of shoreline to search. It has also been fished for over 100 years so there should be something about you would think.

http://watchthestoryunfold.com/2015/06/the-weekend-away-part-1/ no detecting. But i did two blog posts about a recent camping trip. However we are going back - qith the right gear. Photos in first post are a bit sideways when you click on them. However second post they are all good.

Enjoy some of the territory.
