Well I _had_ wondered why there was a water police station on Lake Gin (the previous theory was to counter the massive amounts of cross-lake drug smuggling from Evatt to Belconnen) – I guess it’s to protect us from the hordes of second world war submarines still lurking in the murky depths.

So that’s where it got to!

Must have headed south from Sydney Harbour, got lost at around Batemans bay, headed up the Clyde, somehow got in the Molonglo (probably carried it) and then sunk in Lake Ginninderra after running into a giant carp, or, more probably, getting tangled up with a shopping trolley. Feel free to find fault in my hypothesis.

However, I find it hard to believe that it could have sailed up Ginninderra Creek without anyone noticing it.

That ain’t Ginnie – it’s a Japanese midget sub!

I’d be very impressed if you could get the sun to set in that direction

August? Morning?…frosty?…brrrr

Nice colours…and a fitting one given what’s happened to the masts (if only the sun was setting, not rising)

That’s beautiful!

And I think the thing in the foreground is the Loch Ginninderra Monster, or as we call her, Ginnie. Och Ey Da Noo!

Those naval masts are no longer as well.

Top shot.

The lens flare off the sun looks very nikon-esque

Thumper Thumper 10:30 am 22 Dec 06

Great shot.

Is that a freshie croc in the foreground? Or a lake monster?
