Canberra Collection 2014

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.

Classic Canberra Morning

3 Nov 2014: What a beautiful morning out on Lake Burley Griffin. I can’t believe that people can write and say that LBG hasn’t any life or activity. There were kayakers, stand up paddle boarders, dragon boats and hot air balloons floating through the morning mist. There was a multitude of sculls and their support crews flying past me on the water and at one point I was nearly ‘T- Boned’ by a quad. On the shore line there was plenty of action with boot camps, joggers, walkers, cyclists and dog walkers all enjoying a gorgeous Canberra morning. What a fantastic atmosphere and to top it all off, the day began with a beautiful golden glow!
