Optical explosion

9 Feb 2013: Here we go again, another optical explosion on Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra. It amazes how there is such a huge colour change over such a small amount of time. The best part is that this is not a one off sunrise; I am treated to this experience more often than not. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.


6.20am: At this point I am smiling with anticipation


6.21am: The Kings Avenue Bridge framing the sunrise perfectly.


6.22am: Loving the tones


6.23am: The ‘Red Chilli’ always points me in the right direction

6.23am: No two are the same.

6.28am: Every sunrise in unique

6.29am: The magic moment when the sun cracks open flooding light.

6.32am: Now that’s Gold.

6.36am: In sections the water was like as sheet of glass.

6.44am: Great conditions and fantastic company. This is where the big issues are solved.

Marble Vortex: It’s not often that the clouds filter the sun like that with such calm conditions.

“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.” Jo Walton
