Stormy and Sensational

21 Aug 2014: The sky was brooding, the winds were up and the cloud formations were sensational. How can you resist such temptation. It was late and I only had 30 minutes left to soak up the sunset after a long day of teaching. I decided to throw caution to the wind as I really wanted to see what I would be treated to as the sky was changing at such a rapid rate. All I can say is that I’m so glad I went out. I hope you enjoy the shots.

Absolute Howler of a Start

11 Aug 2014: What a howler of a way to start the working week. The super moon was just brilliant and the light southerly winds definitely had a bit of bite. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and this made for a very relaxed morning. It may have been cool, but it was still a classic way to see another day begin.
All the best and have a great week.

A Living Painting

9 Aug 2014: It felt as though I was paddling in a living painting. Mother Nature mesmerised me this morning by beginning the day with gorgeous pastel pinks which slowly transitioned into soft sublime tones. It’s hard to believe that these beautiful conditions would result from subzero temperatures and heavy fog.

Winter Wonderland

6 Aug 2014: What a hair raising sunrise in Canberra this morning. The chilling -6 degree temps continued creating an idyllic winter wonderland. Icicles were glistening everywhere, mist was dancing on the water and the atmosphere was serene. It was definitely worth getting out in these freezing temperatures to experience a morning like this.

Frosty and Fantastic

3 Aug 2014: What a start to the morning with minus 5 temps, crystal clear skies, mist dancing on the water. Despite the cold biting at my face and my fingers and toes burning I couldn’t resist paddling further so that I could watch the scenery transform. I was transfixed by the sunrise which rose resembling a pot of gold. Behind me was a soft palette of soft pastel tones. Winter at its best with snow play available in the Brindabella’s and perfect clear skies for all to enjoy
