Sunrise and Silhouttes = Smiles

7 Nov 2013: This morning I was treated to a gorgeous sunrise and stunning silhouettes. I ventured over the mouth of the Jerrabomberra Wetlands and caught a the sunrise with ‘Pedro’ and his Squadron. Soon after that the members from The “Capital Lakes Rowing Club” were getting ready for their morning rowing session on LBG. Then to top it all of I decided to drift my way through the Kingston Foreshore developed. I don’t think it will be too long before the Kingston Foreshore will be alive and buzzing, I’m looking forward to grabbing a table, sitting back on the pier and enjoying the view.  It’s going to be another beautiful day here in Canberra so I hope that you get outside and enjoy the sunshine. Have a great day!

Molten Sunrise

19 July 2013: WOW. It looked as though molten lava was spilling from the sky and floating on the waters surface this morning. That sunrise is etched well and truly into my retinas for life. Its been a while since I have taken in a sunrise that was so vivid; it was mind blowing. Newcastle has certainly farewelled me in true style. I hope you enjoy the shots.

Cruising in Newcastle

17 July 2013: It was so nice to be home and have another beautiful cruise on Newcastle Harbour. Yet again I had 6am start and I‘m so happy that I did as the early morning light refraction was brilliant. It’s so nice to be out on the water and watch the sun pop each day, I’m so lucky to be able to experience it.

6.18am: The Shimmy Sunrise - Newcastle. The light refraction was amazing. This is 40 minutes before the scheduled sunrise.... Unreal!

Newcastle Brilliance

16 July 2013: This morning I was dodging Coal Tankers and being cast around by two foot bow waves from passing Tug Boats as I was being treated to a stunning golden lightshow on Newcastle Harbour.  I had a beautiful three hour morning session that started from Newcastle Mariner through to Nobby’s Head and back. What a great way to start the day. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed capturing them!

Out on the water for an early start.

Marvellous Monday

15 July 2013:Wow what a marvellous Monday morning out on LBG.

It may have been a grey and overcast Monday morning with the odd drizzle about, but the water was super glassy. It’s been a while since I have seen the entire lake like a sheet of glass. The calm cloudy conditions made for perfect paddling and great photographic conditions, the soft light was brilliant and the mirror reflections keep me out there for a lot longer than I anticipated. How can you leave the water when it’s just so good!

My good mate....'Charlie Honker'...the protector of the lake.
