A Classic CBR Carnival Morning

9 March 2015: It was a carnival atmosphere on LBG this morning to celebrate Canberra Day 2015. A record number of balloons launched from the Lawns of Old Parliament House and adorned the Canberra skyline while SUP riders, fellow kayakers and local scullers enjoyed the colourful spectacle from the water. Even the local birdlife joined in on the parade!

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.

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.
