Hi everyone, filmed last weekend ! Braved the cold but had Lake Ballard basically to ourselves. There's a blurb on YouTube so I won't repeat all the info here. This is a must see place. In my opinion, doesn't get the recognition it should .Costs nothing to camp there!

G'day Mike the night time shots give the impression that the aliens have landed. Good drone work.

Hi Dunc, it was fun walking out on the lake at night ! Pitch black - only iPhone light but the results with pics and time lapse were awesome ! The mornings were frigid ! Must have been below zero ?? Cheers Mike

Nice work. Brings back memories of a frosty night there 12 months ago.

Visitors should note there is no wood there. And you'll likely need some!

Cheers.

Rocco we were well prepared with the wood supply. Definitely cold with the clear skies ! Cheers Mike

Have camped there many times on the way round to Mt. Ida gold detecting areas.
To us, those stick figures more denigrate the lake than enhance it.
Why try to improve on what nature created near perfectly.
We humans have a habit of doing this

Mike you must know of some great places to explore out that way ? You may have noticed in my video I was honing in on the beauty of those islands in the middle of the lake. Nature at its best ! Cheers Mike

The Gormley concept is sublime... and heaps sublimer than the ecological catastrophe caused by all the gold detectors/miners over the last century and a half...

Cheers.

John I have to agree, many of those abandoned open pits, gold, iron ore and coal, are an ecological disgrace.
But an ethical detector operator, apart from footprints left behind you wont even know he has been there.

Unfortunately, as with so many outback track litterers, that attitude does not extend to everyone.
