Friday Morning Cruise

7 Feb 2014: What a gorgeous way to end the working week. My morning paddle began with me drifting on beautiful pastel hues which transformed quickly into another lovely sunrise. The near perfect conditions made for an extremely pleasurable way to end the working week. I hope that you enjoy another stunning day here in Canberra and that you have a great weekend.

I love paddling on gorgeous pastel tones

100 photos for a 100 years of Canberra

I thought it only fitting to compile a 100 shots as a tribute to the Centenary of Canberra. I’ve had a fantastic year being mesmerised by so many gorgeous sunrises and I am continually amazed at how LBG constantly treats me to a wonderful natural lightshow each and every paddling session. Canberra should be known as the ‘Sunrise Capital of Australia’. The four seasons have been superb. One minute you are paddling through pea soup fog, the next you’re being wowed by amazing pastels tones, or being dazzled by brilliant golden hues, the variety is extensive. I found it extremely hard to select the final 100 as I have snapped over 30,000 photos this year. That would have to be a life time of sunrises in one year- how lucky I am!

I wish everyone a very merry Christmas and I hope that you have an enjoyable holiday break.

Thanks for your support and I look forward to seeing and hearing from you all in the new year.

World of Green

30 Nov 2013: Green was the scene and it set the tone for this morning’s theme, get up early if you are keen. Is it obvious that I have been reading to many Dr Seuss books to my five years old? I had a pleasurable paddle into the wetlands this morning and immersed myself in a world of green and returned back happy as a bean.

I think that I discovered the wetland portal into a world of green.

Wetland Reflections

14 Nov 2013:

The first thing I noticed this morning was that LBG’s water levels have risen due the recent rains. On the 25 October 2013, NCA Acting Chief Executive, Andrew Smith said a technical assessment was commissioned to determine if the lake level could be raised prior to finishing work on the dam. ‘The NCA has received independent advice that it is safe to return the lake to full supply level,’ Mr Smith said. This was a perfect opportunity for me to drift amongst the magnificent mirror reflections of our wetlands.

Drifting my way through the wetlands is always an enjoyable experience

Relaxed Sunday Start

27 OCT 2013: The sunrise changed colour three times this morning as it burnt through the fog. There were beams of light burning through the Mist, pelicans were silhouetted in the fog and the swans drifted elegantly on glassy waters. All of these elements combined to make for a very relaxing start to my Sunday.

Spectacular Start

1 September 2013: Golden sunrises, dreamy misty fingers of golden rays, hovering balloons, silhouette swans, crazed reflections and pelicans all made for a delightful start to spring this morning. Spring has started in spectacular style and I can’t wait to see the multitude to colours that Canberra is about to produce. I hope that you enjoy the shots 🙂

So glad you are aboard for the trip :)

Sunrises like this provide me with so much peace and contentment, you can see why I’m so addicted and love starting the day like this.  I hope that you enjoy the shots.
