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.

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.

Autumn in CBR is Amazing

“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.

Beautiful Recipe

6 May 2014:I love how the mist turns gold just as the sun pops. The light was so soft, mist was hovering all around and the water was like a sheet of glass. Now that is definitely a beautiful recipe, I love my misty morning paddles on LBG and this morning didn’t disappoint. It’s shaping up to be gorgeous autumn day in Canberra and I hope that it is an enjoyable one for you.

It was a beautiful morning to be out on the water
