Chilly in the Chilli

9 July 2014: It was a chilly paddle in the Red Chilli this morning. The day began with soft subtle tones to the west and the water was like a sheet of glass with light mist dancing on the surface. It didn’t take long for the day begin in stunning style and I was treated to many gorgeous crisp reflections. You know it’s cold when the water turns to ice on the hatch of your kayak. I hope that you enjoy the shots from my icy paddle on LBG this morning.

Autumn in CBR is Amazing

“A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air.” This quote by Eric Sloane sums up autumn in Canberra perfectly as it has been absolutely stunning this year. So beautiful, I decided to put a compilation of my favourite autumn experiences. I have been treated to many gorgeous sunrises and sunsets and even bedazzled by hot air balloons drifting on LBG during the balloon festival. Canberra has been amass with a wonderful spectrum of colours as we have transitioned from summer into winter. I hope that you enjoy my photostory of autumn.

Absolute CRACKER of a Sunrise in CBR

9 May 2014: WOW…. What a morning! There’s nothing better than drifting your way into a gorgeous pastel sunrise while floating amongst pink mist,  it’s truly such a beautiful experience. The conditions were near perfect, the colours were superb and the morning transformation was yet again brilliant. I hope that you enjoy the photostory of my paddle on Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra this morning. Have a great day!

 

The early morning colours were fantastic .

Casual Cruise

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.

It was a very relaxed morning out on the water this morning

Breathtakingly Beautiful

15 April 2014: I was engulfed by golden mist and shards of light as I paddled my way into the Jerrabomberra Wetlands this morning. I am always in awe of the scenery on display in our nation’s capital. It really is breathtakingly beautiful at this time of the year and I encourage others to experience what Canberra has to offer.

Superb Sights and Sounds

14 March 2014: There’s something unique about experiencing the blast of a burner from a hot air balloon as it floats metres away from the nose of your kayak. The balloons looked fantastic as they danced through our skies and drifted on the surface of LBG making it a beautiful morning to be out on the water. The balloon festival has been absolutely stunning and I going to miss it so much. Maybe next year it could run for the entire month, now that would be very cool in deed. I don’t think there would be too many objections from anyone at all.  I hope you like the shots  🙂

What a spectacular start to Friday

Totally Mesmerised

11 March 2014: I was totally mesmerised this morning as a gorgeous sunrise combined perfectly with brilliant balloon display to produce an amazing spectacle. Simply stunning is the best way to describe my experience on the lake this morning. I even latched on the basket of the ‘Capital Chemist’ balloon and was taken for (at least) a 100 metre ride as Justin Galbraith glided the balloon on the water surface. I think I will be floating for the rest of the day…..It just doesn’t get any better than this!

Absolute BLAST of a time at the Canberra Balloon Festival

10 March 2014: Fantastic, brilliant, excellent, hilarious, loads of laughs, what a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was sensational, everyone was laughing, the mood was one of sheer excitement as the pilots turned on a spectacular flying performance. Balloons were casually basket dragging their way across the lake while taking the time out to have a chat to a crowd of kayakers and paddle boarders who were on the water hoping to have a close up experience. The balloon festival has been absolutely brilliant, I sincerely hope you have the opportunity to experience it.

What an awesome experience, what a fantastic festival.
