Sensational Start to the Canberra Balloon Spectacular

7 March 2015: The sky was peppered with a colourful spectrum of hot balloons this morning signalling the beginning of the  Canberra Balloon Spectacular. The event took off in spectacular style with fun new flying faces including a giant Dodo bird, Yoda and an Angry Bird balloon. It was great to see the balloon enthusiastic coming back to Canberra to support this wonderful event. I had balloons drifting millimetres from the nose of the Red Chilli (my kayak) and even managed to have my own chaperone as I was towed by a passing balloon across the water’s surface. The spectacular is running until March 15 so do yourself a favour and catch this national event.

I’m a kayaker who has fallen in love with photography. You'll find me quietly snapping away at the unique seasonal changes that take place around me. I began paddling on the lake as a way to rebuild both my body and mind after enduring an intensive three-month bout of chemotherapy due to testicular cancer. I had never paddled a kayak prior to this and very quickly discovered how stunning it is to be on the water looking out – rather than in. What I love about photography and paddling is that it provides you with best head space. This is why I love my daily paddles, as it gives me peace and contentment along with some of the best natural light shows. Why would you not want to experience it!
