17 June 2013: The title for this morning’s paddle would have to be ‘Monday Morning Marbled Marvel’. I was out on LBG an hour before the scheduled sunrise enjoying another calm and serene Canberra morning. The winds were light and the scattered clouds provided an awesome effect playing with the morning light. You can see why I am addicted to my morning paddles on LBG. There is no better way to start the working week. I hope you have a great week and enjoy this mornings shots.
12 June 2013: As I paddled my way up into the wetlands this morning I was met with marbled skies and mirror reflections. Yet again I was treated to another beautiful pastel transformation. On my return I noticed that the containment lines had been removed from the new Kingston foreshore development site which gave me a chance to have a sneak peak and capture a few early progress shots.

9 June 2013: The heavy fog that engulfed Lake Burley Griffin this morning created the perfect setting for a horror film. We set off paddling 45 minutes prior to the scheduled sunrise and at times we were down to 10 metres visibility. I have paddled in a few heavy fogs, but this morning’s just had that strange and eerie feeling about it. The air was heavy with moisture, everything was dead calm, there was no colour and it so silent. It would have made for a great zombie horror film shoot; It was so surreal but at the same time very weird and wonderful. This lake never ceases to amaze me, this is why I love paddling here so much. No two mornings are ever the same.
I hope that you enjoyed a few shots from this mornings spooky paddle. All the best!
5 June 2013: LBG certainly had a wintery feel about it this morning. It was clear as bell when I took off at 6.15am from the East Basin, but it wasn’t long before the fog slowly rolled in and engulfed the entire lake. At times it gave the impression that it was going to burn off, but then another bank of fog would roll through the Main Basin creating a totally different feel.
The lake never ceases to amaze me how it can take on a totally different persona each day. This is why I love seeing a new day take place from this perspective, every day has its own unique character.

3 June 2013: What a stunning silhouette sunrise this morning. I really didn’t expect to be paddling amongst crystal clear skies and sub zero temperatures after the rainy weekend that we just had. I can tell that we are definitely in winter now as my finger and toes are still thawing out from this morning’s frosty float on Lake Burley Griffin. I always return back so calm and peaceful after a paddle into the wetlands. How could you not when there are so many stunning silhouette reflections. I hope that you enjoy the photos.
