4min exposure, yes. Makes for nice and streaky clouds :)

Australia is a big place, but in Melbourne it tends to rain a lot during winter and is just cold enough to complain about. It doesn't snow here but if it were any colder I might think about wearing a scarf when I go out.

Dang, that's long! And for sure, looks beautiful. I'm assuming you used an ND filter of some sort?

Right on, turns out it was a kinda stupid question haha :) Gotcha, almost scarf weather it is!

That's a a bit like asking what is the US like in the winter. If you placed it over north America it would stretch from the bottom of Baja Peninsula in Mexico to Northern BC. So at its extremes winter can be 35 deg C (95F ) and tropical or -10 C (14F) and snowing depending on where you are and your altitude.

Its fun to play around with https://thetruesize.com/ as the Mercator world map makes everything in the upper northern latitudes of Northern hemisphere look gigantic and has distorted most peoples view of the world.

Well, I feel like an idiot now! I definitely knew that too, it just wasn't information that was easily accessible in my brain when I posted ;)

That site is really interesting, thanks! It's really crazy how much smaller Australia looks on a map than it is in reality.

I was not intending to make you feel like an idiot ! Sorry about that :-{ . But it is fun to drag things around; like Iceland onto Africa and its tiny. Also Argentinia is similar size to India; but most people who have not crossed it in a bus think its small. Its huge when you drag it onto North America.

Oh it wasn't your fault at all! I just realized it wasn't the brightest question haha ;) Man, that's so interesting. So strange how people's perceptions of country size is totally skewed by how maps present them! it's great to get some actual perspective.

Australia is about the same surface area as the lower 48 states.

Wooah! Australia is HUGE!
