Victoria's Great Alpine Road

This footage shows a driver's eye view of Victoria's Great Alpine Road, travelling in the coastwards direction. It covers samples of the journey between Myrtleford and Bruthen, with some still shots to better capture the surroundings, especially in the high areas near Mt Hotham. Drizzle and a week of mild sunny weather had eaten into the snow cover in the Alpine sections, but this made driving safer. Most driving scenes are about four times normal speed.

Perth Airport public viewing area

A look at the public viewing area near the south end of Perth Airport's long runway, and some of the landings and take-offs that can be seen from there. Footage was shot on different days and wind directions and is not shown in order. Includes some speeded up, slowed down, and time-lapse shot on my phone ... because I was experimenting! Anyone with a long lense or up-to-date gear can get much closer shots than I did.

Unlike my other videos, this one has no accompanying web page - I uploaded it just because I liked it.
