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.

Daily Discovery

24 Sept 2014: Everyday I’m treated to a new discovery. This morning I was drenched in golden mist as I leisurely paddled my way on the Molonglo River. Spring has been truly sensational so far and I am loving every minute of it. I hope you get the chance to enjoy a gorgeous morning in Canberra before the predicted change arrives later in the day.

Farewell to Winter

31 Aug 2014: There was a chill in the air, the landscape was shroud with mist and I was slicing my through glassy waters once again on Lake Burley Griffin. It was a beautiful farewell to winter and it didn’t take too long for the mist to burn off to reveal the beginning of a beautiful day in Canberra. Winter has provided me with many wonderful moments, but I’m really looking forward to the  warmth and colour that spring will bring.
