Captivating Canberra

What a blissful morning it was out on LBG this morning. It began with soft pastel tones twenty minutes before the scheduled sunrise and transformed into a captivating display of gorgeous colours and vivid reflections. There was plenty of activity with SUP’s, outriggers, sculls and loads of people enjoying and utilising our lake.

Happy Birthday LBG – 50 Years Young

Lake Burley Griffin is a national landmark that has provided it’s locals and visitors with so many memorable moments over the past 50 years. It’s has been a privilege to be able to witness and photograph the kaleidoscope of colours and seasonal features that Lake Burley Griffin offers me each day as a backdrop.

What I love about photography and paddling is that it provides me with an incredibly calm headspace. It is my meditation. No two days are the same, and each day provides me with a natural light show that sometimes leaves me gasping in wonder. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I have enjoyed capturing these moments.

A Living Painting

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.

Frosty and Fantastic

3 Aug 2014: What a start to the morning with minus 5 temps, crystal clear skies, mist dancing on the water. Despite the cold biting at my face and my fingers and toes burning I couldn’t resist paddling further so that I could watch the scenery transform. I was transfixed by the sunrise which rose resembling a pot of gold. Behind me was a soft palette of soft pastel tones. Winter at its best with snow play available in the Brindabella’s and perfect clear skies for all to enjoy
