Tantalising and Turbulent

Sunday 30 November 2014: Words cannot express the sunrise this morning. There was so much variety with the scenery transitioning from what looked like a pot of molten gold  to a perfect rainbow arcing over the city scape. The clouds formations were amazing, often turbulent and forever changing.

I had a wonderful 20 minutes of  chasing rainbows on Lake Burley Griffin.

But how wrong I was

The clouds rolled in and the rain started to fall and you would think that this would be the end, but it was only the beginning of the next stage.

The sky became angry and the formations were complex.

I was sitting in the middle on the main basin drifting amongst the most spectacular reflections.

Imagination overrules all. The High Court of Australia was looking very surreal.

It was a turbulent but terrific morning and one that will stay with me for many years to come. I hope that you have enjoyed the photos as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
