Marvellous Monday

15 July 2013:Wow what a marvellous Monday morning out on LBG.

It may have been a grey and overcast Monday morning with the odd drizzle about, but the water was super glassy. It’s been a while since I have seen the entire lake like a sheet of glass. The calm cloudy conditions made for perfect paddling and great photographic conditions, the soft light was brilliant and the mirror reflections keep me out there for a lot longer than I anticipated. How can you leave the water when it’s just so good!

My good mate....'Charlie Honker'...the protector of the lake.

Most people would have stayed in side and thought.....Its drizzling, won't bother.

You never never know until you get out there and have a go!

Great reflections everywhere you looked.

I just love it when it's so smooth like this.

A moment of drizzle. Problem easily fixed, just put on my Japara. There is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing :)

Felt like I was paddling on the clouds at one stage.

I’ll be disappearing for this week as I will be heading North in the search of stunning estuaries, creeks, harbours and point breaks.  This certainly was a beautiful way to start a week of paddling and photography.

Have a great week.
