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.

Paddlers in the Mist

31 OCT 2013: It was a beautiful misty start on Lake Burley Griffin this morning. I was enjoying the peace and calm waiting for the sun to rise and out of the  rising mist on the Molonglo River shot the Ice Dragon Outrigger Canon Club, they  looked fantastic. I drifted my kayak into the East Basin enjoying the sunrise to discover  plenty of activity with the outriggers, surf boats, sculls and kayakers all  going through their morning paces. All this activity made for an enjoyable Thursday morning float.

5.36am: I looking forward to this morning.
