Wednesday Wow Factor

22 May 2013: WOW, this is a huge photo story today. The title for this morning’s paddle on Lake Burley Griffin definitely has to be WWF, the ”Wednesday WOW Factor”. I know that I keep saying it but what a transformation. The colours this morning were wild and I wasn’t the only one out there to enjoy it. The Australian girls junior sculls rowing team went through their paces on a chilly Canberra morning, the RAAF Balloon was hovering high in the sky and I was lucky enough to be paid a visit by the LBG pelicans. I just love starting my day like this!

At this point I know it is going to be a wonderful start to the day

It amazing how the tones to west are so soft.

It hard to pick which way you are going to look....what a dilemma!

I found myself just floating away waiting for the sun to pop up.

    • Thanks Valerie,
      It was stunning out there once again. Although the temps are getting cooler with each morning. But you soon forget about cold when there is a sunrise like that happening.
