12 Feb 2015: Early pink and mauve tones dressed the morning sky and transformed with stunning colour and cloud combinations. This Canberra lightshow was completed with vivid gold’s and blues leaving one in total awe. It felt like I was paddling in a living painting.

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.
Tantalising and Turbulent
Sunday 30 November 2014: Words cannot express the sunrise this morning. There was so much variety with the scenery transitioning from what looked like a pot of molten gold to a perfect rainbow arcing over the city scape. The clouds formations were amazing, often turbulent and forever changing.

Scintillating Canberra Sunset
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.
Beautiful Blue Beginning
2 Oct 2014: It really can’t get much better than this. The conditions on Lake Burley Griffin were sheer perfection this morning with crystal clear skies, smooth glassy water and mild temperatures. A perfect day to get out and enjoy the school holidays with Floriade in full bloom.
28 Sept 2014: It felt like I was paddling in a Turner painting. This was such an amazing experience that will be etched in my mind for ever. I hope you enjoy the photos.
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.
In Total Balance
23 July 2014: Often the most amazing places are right on your doorstep…. We just need to open the door. The day begun with gorgeous golden tones to the east and finished off with beautiful blue reflections to the west and I have to say “it just doesn’t get any better than that!”
