10 Oct 2014: Today began elegantly with soft pink hues highlighting the morning sky and transformed ever so slowly to unveil a beautiful crystal blue day. The spring conditions in our nations capital, Canberra have been exceptional this year bringing perfect conditions for viewing our spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Continue reading →
2 Oct 2014: It really can’t get much better than this. The conditions on Lake Burley Griffin were sheer perfection this morning with crystal clear skies, smooth glassy water and mild temperatures. A perfect day to get out and enjoy the school holidays with Floriade in full bloom.
7 Sept 2014: What a perfect start to fathers day. I had the entire lake to myself as I paddled amongst vivid glassy reflections on LBG. Who needs a present when one can have an experience such as this.
9 Aug 2014: It felt as though I was paddling in a living painting. Mother Nature mesmerised me this morning by beginning the day with gorgeous pastel pinks which slowly transitioned into soft sublime tones. It’s hard to believe that these beautiful conditions would result from subzero temperatures and heavy fog.
26 July 2014: The scenery was stark but beautiful in its own way. There is something mystical about leafless trees and drooping willow branches as they stand still against the heavy fog and reflect in the perfect glassy conditions. The crowds were thin this morning with only a few fellow paddlers on the water.Every now and then a splash of colour from a buoy would brighten up what was a rather grey morning. The sun tried its hardest to peek through the heavy clouds and a perfect arc of a rainbow ended what was a cold, bleak and rather drab day in the nation’s capital. Continue reading →
5 July 2014: Despite the chilly conditions the soft soothing hues and brilliant reflections on LBG made for a pleasant paddle. The glow of the sunrise shone through the belt of aubergine snow clouds that hovered low over the Canberra basin.
28 June 2014: The gorgeous reflections that I experienced this morning was the last thing I expected as the forecast was for windy conditions early on and by mid morning the weather was meant to turn extremely bleak (which it did). I was lucky enough to find this little patch of peace and calm on the section where the Molonglo River meets with LBG. It was here that I was treated to a very pretty start to Saturday. The quote from Pablo Picasso “Everything you can imagine is real” pretty much sums up my morning paddle. I hope you enjoy the photo’s.
23 April 2014: I casually cruised my way into a glorious sunrise this morning. I thoroughly enjoyed all the sights and sounds of Newcastle harbour as the winds were light, the light was superb and I wasn’t in any hurry at all. I hope that you have a great day.
