jtneill. It's a mad adventure and a race against darkness up the slopes of Mount Tennent to the snow.
James seems to have strapped a video camera to his body and ran up the Mountain starting at 4.20 pm.
The video shows a vivid side to the mountain, wildlife, scenery and a lovely ending that I thought was well worth a little extra exposure...

Hey Dave, I think you should take a leaf out of James' book and shoot your next video while taking on a drastic physical challenge, like swimming across Lake Burley Griffen at night in a gale or abseiling down Black Mountain Tower during a bushfire. :) Keep up the great work. Cheers, Paul.ReplyDelete
Thanks Paul... I think a car inner-tube starting on the Murrumbidgee up on the long plain (where you can still step over it) all the way down to Tharwa... I'll mount the camera but I won't be on it mate :)ReplyDelete
