Balloon spectacular in Canberra

Phew, it’s been a very busy couple of weeks..

Lots of tours, photography jobs, competitions and more!!

Whilst I was in Canberra {one of my favourite places}, I met up with 12 other members from the click walk learn VIP group and we photographed the Balloon Spectacular.

It was a super early start, there were more than 20 balloons setting up in front of old Parliament House…It was fantastic!!

We followed them from the launching area down to the Commonwealth Bridge…the sunrise was amazing and the balloons were an awesome spectacle in the sky..

Here are my pics from the morning out…thanks everyone for your input and support of click walk learn…YOU MADE MY DAY!!

Breakfast afterwards was great, lots of conversation about photography and how to get the ‘perfect’ shot!!

Fast action photography at Penrith Whitewater Stadium

A couple of weeks back the click walk learn VIP group headed to the Penrith Whitewater Stadium to photograph some super fast action on the water 🙂

This artificial whitewater sporting facility was purpose built for the canoe/kayak slalom events at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney.

Today it is used for recreational rafting {great fun} and local, national and international canoeing/slalom events.

This ‘U’ shaped course is over 320 metres in length, 0.8 to 1.2 metres deep and between eight and 12 metres wide.

River pebbles set into the concrete create a ‘natural’ river feel. Movable obstacles are also added to vary the difficulty of the course and to fine tune the rapids.

A footpath follows the course all the way around which made getting in ‘close’ to photograph the action really easy. This path was built with the media in mind for the 2000 Olympic games. If you are interested in photography – it really is a great place to get some awesome shots..

I love fast action photography – we used super fast speeds to ‘freeze’ the water. Thanks everyone for a great day out – enjoy the pics 🙂
