Today was a special moment for me as this marked my youngest son Louis (9yrs) maiden solo kayak at the Balloon Spectacular. He is totally obsessed and loved every minute of it. Now he is asking for a camera, so I’m arming him with my trusty Canon D30.
14 Feb 2015: Soft subtle tones and calm conditions made for perfect conditions to test drive my new canon 70D camera. I paddled into the picturesque Jerrabomberra Wetlands which showcased the waterlilies in bud, willows dancing on the water and an abundance of birdlife.
Don’t let the overcast conditions deter you from venturing into the National Multicultural Festival with sensational food on offer and some great local bands to entertain you. Be sure to stop by the Croatian stall and sample some of the food from my heritage.
23 Dec 2014: I glided on the glassy waters of the Maria River this morning and paddled amongst the most amazing reflections. The Macleay region is so untouched and it offers you such spectacular scenery. I had the entire river all to myself; it is so nice to be reunited with the magic of the Macleay.
What a memorable 2014. I’ve continued to be mesmerised by the beauty of Canberra with each and every season offering a spectacle of colour.
I have peacefully paddled amongst soft pastels tones, navigated my way through pea soup fog and have been wowed by our -8 wintery conditions as I glide my way on glassy, often near frozen waters. Each and every sunrise is different and I am continually amazed by this natural beauty especially the golden sunrises which are special to our inland city.
Through my paddling experiences I have been fortunate to meet fellow paddlers, friends and others who have become influential in my life. Our common link is our love for Canberra and all that it offers.
I have found it extremely hard to put a selection of shots together as there have been so many memorable moments this year. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I have enjoyed capturing and sharing them.
I wish everyone a very merry Christmas and I hope that you have an enjoyable festive season. Thank you for your ongoing support and I look forward to seeing and hearing from you in the New Year.
29 Nov 2014: Today’s paddle started with an electric sunrise and sent me on a day of discovery. The colour of spring was reflected in the underwater world with fuchsia tangled tree roots glowing below the water’s surface.
