1 Nov 2014: What a beautiful beginning.
24 Oct 2014: .Wow, brilliant, fantastic, extraordinary, dynamic…..can some one get me a thesaurus please! I found myself standing there speechless in awe gasping at its beauty. That sunset just exploded from nowhere to produce a scintillating light show that was beyond words. It was one of the best sunsets that I have experienced for a while.
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.
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.
9 Sept 2014: I was treated to a wonderful light show this morning in Canberra. The clouds acted as a natural filter softening the sunlight which cast gorgeous pastel tones to light up the sky. It started off with soft mauves tones and it quickly transformed into a stunning vivid light show.We are treated to many stunning mornings and this one was no exception!
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.
28 July 2014: It all began with a hint of pink to the east and it quickly transformed into a stunning sunrise. This morning I was treated to yet again another gorgeous beginning. I hope that you enjoy the photo story of my peaceful paddle.
9 July 2014: It was a chilly paddle in the Red Chilli this morning. The day began with soft subtle tones to the west and the water was like a sheet of glass with light mist dancing on the surface. It didn’t take long for the day begin in stunning style and I was treated to many gorgeous crisp reflections. You know it’s cold when the water turns to ice on the hatch of your kayak. I hope that you enjoy the shots from my icy paddle on LBG this morning.
“A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air.” This quote by Eric Sloane sums up autumn in Canberra perfectly as it has been absolutely stunning this year. So beautiful, I decided to put a compilation of my favourite autumn experiences. I have been treated to many gorgeous sunrises and sunsets and even bedazzled by hot air balloons drifting on LBG during the balloon festival. Canberra has been amass with a wonderful spectrum of colours as we have transitioned from summer into winter. I hope that you enjoy my photostory of autumn.
24 May 2014: This morning I was drawn into a wonderful creation that left me wanting more. The amazing cloud formations were highlighted by gorgeous hues to produce a stunning work of art. It’s so hard to describe what it was like out there this morning but hopefully the photos will do it justice.
