I must learn to use this same suspensful technique in my next films. :unsure:

I think they all perished actually, so Mike's runt of the group has turned out to be the only survivor and is now looking a treat. Is that the deal Mike ?

Beautifully designed garden with lots of eye candy there! Great photos, too. I love the night shots, but from what I've read about Australia, I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to venture out in the darkness! Glad you did it for us! Bravo!

Mike`s garden sure is easy on the eye...and the rock work is a work of art in itself and a real labour of love.
Troy thanks for the vid`s and the shots of this special place..really liked the night shots.
