Steely Blue Saturday

29 June 2013: The overcast conditions and drizzly rain couldn’t put a dampener on my morning paddle. Instead it created many amazing steel blue reflections as the sun was trying its best to break through the low heavy clouds. It certainly had an alpine feel about it out there this morning.

The rain held off and everything lined up to produce another nice morning out there on the water.

I loved the misty conditions and how it draped over the mountains.

Floating out on the water allows you to see things from a different angle.

I even got the chance to see a piece of the new bridge get placed into position.
