Paddler in the Mist

29 April 2014: I drifted away on glassy waters watching the sun burn through the mist to produce a magical atmosphere this morning. The temperatures maybe getting cooler here in Canberra but that’s why the conditions are so stunning. The wind were calm, the scenery was stunning and the light was fantastic. I’m loving autumn in Canberra.

Lighting up the skies

13 March 2014: The balloons certainly added a huge splash of colour and lit up our overcast skies this morning and once again the pilots put on a spectacular performance. There were plenty of people watching both from the water and the shoreline as the balloons tethered and drifted across Lake Burley Griffin. The festival has been absolutely fantastic, I hope that you get the chance to experience it.

Totally Mesmerised

11 March 2014: I was totally mesmerised this morning as a gorgeous sunrise combined perfectly with brilliant balloon display to produce an amazing spectacle. Simply stunning is the best way to describe my experience on the lake this morning. I even latched on the basket of the ‘Capital Chemist’ balloon and was taken for (at least) a 100 metre ride as Justin Galbraith glided the balloon on the water surface. I think I will be floating for the rest of the day…..It just doesn’t get any better than this!

Absolute BLAST of a time at the Canberra Balloon Festival

10 March 2014: Fantastic, brilliant, excellent, hilarious, loads of laughs, what a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was sensational, everyone was laughing, the mood was one of sheer excitement as the pilots turned on a spectacular flying performance. Balloons were casually basket dragging their way across the lake while taking the time out to have a chat to a crowd of kayakers and paddle boarders who were on the water hoping to have a close up experience. The balloon festival has been absolutely brilliant, I sincerely hope you have the opportunity to experience it.

What an awesome experience, what a fantastic festival.

Perfect Combinations

23 Feb 2014: Backlit clouds beamed golden rays of light into the morning skies over Canberra creating a wonderful atmosphere. The crazy cloud formations and the beautiful light combined perfectly to produce some wild reflections on a very calm morning.

The reflections were amazing. Stunning Sunday has begun.

Sunrise Tonic

16 Jan 2014: This morning I had my daily tonic of soothing tones and magic reflections. Seeing the day being like this is my morning mediation and it’s such a huge part of my life since I began paddling and photographing after finishing treatment over two years ago. Every sunrise has its own unique signature and this morning’s sunrise definitely hit the spot.

I hope that you can stay cool and avoid the heat today; it’s going to be a scorcher here. Have a great day!

Another golden start to great day
