14 Sept 2014: An early slither of sun shone through allowing for a momentary glimpse of the sunrise before a heavy band of fog rolled in engulfing the entire lake. Fortunately the fog lifted to reveal a glorious spring day, perfect for outdoor adventures, sporting grand finals and our nationals flower spectacle, Floriade.
9 Aug 2014: It felt as though I was paddling in a living painting. Mother Nature mesmerised me this morning by beginning the day with gorgeous pastel pinks which slowly transitioned into soft sublime tones. It’s hard to believe that these beautiful conditions would result from subzero temperatures and heavy fog.
26 July 2014: The scenery was stark but beautiful in its own way. There is something mystical about leafless trees and drooping willow branches as they stand still against the heavy fog and reflect in the perfect glassy conditions. The crowds were thin this morning with only a few fellow paddlers on the water.Every now and then a splash of colour from a buoy would brighten up what was a rather grey morning. The sun tried its hardest to peek through the heavy clouds and a perfect arc of a rainbow ended what was a cold, bleak and rather drab day in the nation’s capital.
25 July 2014: Some would prefer to snuggle under the doona or sit by a fireside during the depths of winter but it is so worth experiencing the crisp, cool mornings and the soft winter tones that a Canberra morning has to offer. This morning was undeniably cold with fog shrouding the lake making it difficult to spot fellow paddlers. As expected the morning unfolded to reveal a crystal clear day and even the swans were out to welcome all that ventured out.
2 July 2014: My face was damp, my fingers were fresh and the air was so saturated that it felt like light misty rain was falling. The scenery was surreal, what a great combination! The fog returned to cloak Canberra for the majority of the day but usually once the fog burns off we are be treated to a beautiful winter’s day. I hope you enjoy the shots from my foggy paddle on LBG. 🙂
22 June 2014: The temps may have been crisp, but it was definitely a very peaceful paddle into the wetlands this morning. I hope you enjoyed the trip.
21 June 2014: It was a mystical paddle on Lake Burley Griffin this morning as the fog rolled in from the east basin continually changing the scenery. The water was super glassy and the sun was trying its best to burn through to lighten up the day. Just when it seemed that the blanket of fog was about lift, in rolled another wave. This made for a wonderful winter’s paddle.
