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.
21 Aug 2014: The sky was brooding, the winds were up and the cloud formations were sensational. How can you resist such temptation. It was late and I only had 30 minutes left to soak up the sunset after a long day of teaching. I decided to throw caution to the wind as I really wanted to see what I would be treated to as the sky was changing at such a rapid rate. All I can say is that I’m so glad I went out. I hope you enjoy the shots.
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.
6 June 2014: Marbled waters and fantastic cloud reflections made for a wonderful start on Lake Burley Griffin this morning. I love it when the conditions are super glassy and there is a terrific light show like this taking place. I hope that you like the shots…… Have a great weekend!
