What An Amazing Weekend!

The weekend away was full of fun and excitement in such amazing scenery that I cannot comprehend.
The strangest part of the weekend is that we are in a drought, and the lakes and the dams which we visited are amazingly low. While in North Queensland around Townsville they have had over a metre of rain in the last five days.
Here is a photo took at blowering reserve some hundred kilometres west of Canberra.
As you can see the dam is really green, the water levels are extremely low and the fact that is green means that the water levels have been so low for such a long time the vegetation has grown says a lot.
I have a heap of photos which I want to share and will I guess I’ll have to space out over a few days so I dont bore shitless, so here is the first of the ones which I took.
Hope you enjoy them and let me know what you think.

Special Sunrise!

It seems to be a think of late that most weekends I get up early to capture the first rays of the day in a different location in and around Canberra. To day was not different except for the fact that my daughter asked to join me in the pre-dawn shoot. <3

Now to put some context into this, she is a teen and last time I checked teens are like vampires… they don’t get up before sunrise, so it was really nice to have her along.

While mother nature had very different ideas of what I could shoot with a heavy cloud cover we did happen to grab a small bit of sun as it was peeking through the clouds. 🙂

Happy Balloons

Have you ever wondered what happy balloons look like?

Well I had the opportunity to to find out. A couple of us crazy kids grabed some balloons and popped out around the National Art Gallery snapped off a few shots and I must say it was a lot of fun.

I kept thinking of that movie Up and wondering how many balloons would it actually take for one of the models to be taken away……   and after some really deep thought I snapped out of it and got to work. 🙂

Contemplating where balloons can take you

Imagination runs wild when you come across a bunch of creative people that want to be creative. Kinda makes you wonder whether limits are, and are there actually any limits?

Simple task of grabbing a couple of balloons and seeing what you make of them is an interesting challenge….. If you haven’t done it give it a go sure you will find a blast.
