Silhouette Sunrise

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.

I even had the privilege of a Pelican escort into the wetlands.

I decided to hang out with the locals for a while.

The beginning of a new day.

It was nice to feel the warmth of the sun as it was minus two and the fingers and toes were a bit snappy.

The swans can photobomb me as much as they like!
