A Different Perspective

1 May 2013: I just love seeing Canberra from a different perspective. This morning I was floating around on the water from 5.30am. Initially it was clear as a bell and I was taking in some awesome lighting reflections from the National Museum and the Commonwealth Bridge. I could see the fog brewing in pre dawn distance down in the wetlands and it wasn’t long before the fog slowly crept in and blanketed the entire lake. This created an amazing atmosphere out there on the water. I am loving the transition from autumn to winter. I hope that you like the shots.

    • Thanks Valerie, if you have any lake shots or old shots of Canberra you are more than welcome to load them on the ‘Old Photos of Lake Burley Griffin’ tag. I think that you should be able to load a photo up??? Autumn has been stunning so far, but it won’t be long before we experience our first frost.

      • Many tks for the invitation to add old photos. Would like to take you up on that but it may take me a while to locate them (not being digitally filed!) Wishing u smooth waters.

      • No problems at all Valerie. Soon I will be scanning and sorting through a heap of old 35mm negatives of Canberra, pre – filling the lake. I have been given them and even the photographer is unsure of what is there. There could be a few shots of Canberra that have never been seen.
