Hidden Treasure

22 August 2013: I was totally blown away this morning. Who would have thought that a vivid and gorgeous sunrise could take place on such a blustery and miserable morning?  I was on the water for 6am and I decided to drift my way up the Molonglo River with dark and heavy clouds brooding overhead.  Then it was as if someone opened the hidden treasure box. The light show was brilliant, intense and lasted for about 10 minutes. My pocket rocket ‘Canon PowerShot D20’ was working over time as I truly didn’t expect to be treated to anything like this at all. The beautiful colours were quickly extinguished and it wasn’t long before I was paddling amongst light drizzle. Totally amazing; it just goes to show you, you never know what you will experience until you get out there and have a go.

The skies were angry this morning!

The heavy brooding clouds can produce something out of this world.

This morning was shaping up to be one of those mind blowers.

Wow was the word of the morning

It was stunning this morning, often the most amazing things take place right on our own door step. I'm lucky to be able to get out there and experience it.
