Autumn Mystic

29 March 2014: There’s something special about slicing through glassy waters in the dark while being surrounded in fog. Autumn is here and I’m loving it, I was so excited the moment I open the door at 5.30am to discover that it was a foggy morning here in Canberra. The winds were no existent and I just couldn’t get myself down to the lake quick enough. It’s something that is hard to describe, but it’s an experience that is totally unique and something quite a surreal.

I wonder if Excalibur is hidden here....That's how it felt.

The air was saturated with moisture and the lake was like a sheet of glass.

Paddling back the sun finally started to burn through fog the produce an amazing atmosphere.

This shot would have to be one of my favourites for a while but sums up exactly how the morning was.

  1. These are gorgeous Paul. I love your big leaf and the way it’s doing weird and interesting stuff with the surface-tension of the water…quite magical. It seems to draw the water up and make it look like treacle. Autumn is here in the west too, so glorious for gardening. Have a great weekend, Jen

    • What a wonderful morning that was Jen. paddling in the fog is such a fantastic experience. I’m really looking forward the next few weeks and the range of colours that will be on display. Hopefully I will be able to capture a few nice moments.
      Autumn is such a nice season…enjoy 🙂
      I hope that you have a great weekend as well.
      All the best
      Paul
