Today at work Doc pointed out that my image of the storm clouds over Harrison (as blogged the other day) was on the RiotACT!!  I'd sent it the other day but didn't think it'd ever make it up!!  Should have taken DC's advice and sent in some of my dam photos.. maybe I still could, but it seems to be getting a bit late for it now.. 

Anyways.  If anyone happens to google me and finds this.. here's the full sized image..

(oh yeah, and squeeee!! :) )

The next installment of my quest for ACT dams was Corin Dam.  

Did a bit of a detour to Tharwa, and took some pics of the bridge.

Also stopped in at Gibralter Falls.  Tried to get down to the bottom to get some pics looking up, but no luck.

So then headed up to the dam.  After seeing pictures like this of the dam, I was really not expecting to see it full!!  Trekked down the bottom to see the spillway, which was epic awesome!! Was very very squee.

On the way back (apart from seeing plenty kangaroos, including one hopping across the road) a young magpie in the middle of the road took off into the path of the car instead of away, and it went splat :(:(:(:(  It made me very sad .. have been emotional all night..  kinda spoilt the rest of the day which was actually pretty good.. *sigh* ...
