This view was taken from the Red Hill look out. It was my first time being there and I had to agree that the view of Canberra from the look out was pretty special. We were there around dusk and the temperature had dropped quite dramatically. The colour of the sky had been pretty spectacular today, it ranged from burst of orangey red to what you see now in the photo, a gradation of pink to purplish hue, that’s why […]
Today was the last day of school holiday in Canberra. It’s a typical Sunday in the suburb. We drove around a nearby suburb looking for a fast food restaurant for a quick take-away. Too tired to cook, and couldn’t be bothered with more nutritious choice. Good thing I bothered to look up to see this sunset sky, otherwise we will suffer another book cover pattern shot.
As we were sitting in the car for the light to go green (still in Sydney) I noticed the beautiful St Mary Cathedral sprawled right in front of us. We’ve passed it many times this afternoon trying (unsuccessfully) to find a free parking spot in the city, but this time our car was stoping right in front of it thanks to the red light, and we were facing the cathedral without any obstacle. The sun was in its perfect position. […]
Today was probably the only Monday that people actually happy to wake up to. The sun finally shining. After a week of rain, you couldn’t help but missing the heat, the warmth, the dryness that only the sun can offer. The lake was dirty. A lot of debris, branches and all sort. There was even a sign (!) for people not to do anything in the lake because the increase amount of bacteria suspected in the water. Maybe that explained […]
A cyclist friend of mine once said, the best way to get to know a city is by cycling around that city, because you see can see more of everything. Today I finally understood. We cycled for an hour and a half today, and boy, it’s so true that you can see more. So only for today, instead of the usual one photo per day, I will post extra photos. Happy 50th day of the year!
This is the view that I’ve been missing. Last year I came to the lake at least twice a week to run. It’s my place if I want to run 5K or 10K. Less than 5 or in between 5 to 10km I run around my neighborhood. One round around the lake is roughly 5 kilometer, that’s the one of the reasons I do it like this. I haven’t been going the past months due to the school holiday, it […]
See the full gallery on Posterous It’s the first week of summer in Canberra. The morning was sunny with very strong wind and only 9 degrees. It’s funny how you can handle this temperature easily in winter, but somehow felt totally freezing in summer. Location: Lake Burley-Griffin
