The Hills of Canberra

Because of Canberra's location, it is surrounded by hills, (though people like to call them mountains) & it has  quite a few hills in it as well.

Betty & I have started doing a lot more walking, so as a consequence, we've started walking up them & I've taken some photos on the way. Below are links to the photo's I've taken from (&  sometimes on the way to), the summits of these hills. Enjoy!

On the 6th of April, we climbed Mount Ainslie, click here for the photos. You can see other photos taken from the top of Mt Ainslie here & here

We climbed Mount Painter twice during 2018. You can see the photos if you click here

20th April, 2019. We climbed Mount Majura, click here for the photos.

23rd April, 2019, we climbed Percival Hill, which is roughly a 6.5 kilometre round trip from our place. You can click here for the photos.

26th April, 2019. Still feeling energetic we climbed Mt Taylor is South Canberra. Here are the pictures.

Please make sure that  your screen is calibrated so that you can see all the shades in the image below;

You must be able to see all this:
-- 20 sections of equal width and different tone
-- the darkest section must be pure black
-- the lightest section must be pure white
-- there must be no hint of color anywhere along the grey spectrum
If you don't see 20 different tones, you may need to lower the contrast.
If black is not pure black, you need to either darken the monitor or adjust the black point.
If white is not pure white, you need to either lighten the monitor or adjust the white point.
If both black and white are not pure, try to boost the overall contrast or adjust both, the black and white points. If there is a color cast, try and adjust the color balance. Some software allows you to do this separately for both ends of the grey spectrum
