Today the weather was back to Canberra-normal (cold but sunny), which is a lot better than it was earlier in the week, so I took En Bourgogne out to Lake Burley Griffin for some glamour shots. Unfortunately I forgot to take any photos of the lake itself — you’ll just have to accept that it was there behind me.
First, the obligatory flat shot. I held the camera as high as I could but it’s still at a bit of an angle:
If you look closely you can spot the two out-of-place blocks. If you can’t spot them, I’ve circled them in the next shot:
I tried to take a couple of “artsy” pictures but it was pretty windy and the corners kept turning. This one was nice, though:
You can see the blossom on the trees in the background — and it’s only half-way through winter! I couldn’t resist taking another couple of close-up photos as it was so beautiful:
I also caught a couple of black swans who came out of the lake and wandered across the grass. I didn’t want to get too close (they can be aggressive) but I got a couple of zoom shots:
It was too cold to stay out for long so I packed up and came home. It was lovely to get a little sunshine, though, and it was a pretty good place to take photos so I’ll go back there later in the year.
