Foggy Canberra

I woke up in Canberra this morning, where I'm working for a couple of days, to a foggy start. These shots were taken around Lake Burley Griffin (the artificial lake on which Canberra is located) as I took my morning walk. Lots more photos, including the Australian National Museum, and the view with and without fog can be seen by clicking here.

The Enterprise (above) takes you on cruises around the lake.


  1. tes photos de brouillard sont tres belles. cela donne toujours un coté mysterieux

    your photographs of fog are very beautiful. that always gives with dimensions mysterious

  2. This is an image of Canberra I wouldn't think of; but it matches your motto of showing varied aspects apart from the usual tourist images. Loved the Loch Ness style... ;)

  3. I just love this fog. It enhances everything. Nice photography.

    Just a Lily today, plus a shaft of sunshine on my oak tree. A blessing for a bountiful crop — I hope.

  4. Fog puts a cover of mystery on everithing it touch. Beautiful photos!

    And thank you for visiting my blog.

  5. These are some beautifully captured shots...well taken!

  6. Hi Sally,
    came back after seeing your comment on Oya's Istanbul.
    You'll recognize that a Portuguese can't accept that a guy born in Lisbon, Portugal, as Fernando de Bulhões of a wealthy family, on August 15, 1195 and who had the accident of dying in Padua on June 13, 1231, could be named anything else than St. Anthony of Lisbon! ;)
    Furthermore, he's responsible for my blog visiting and posting today, as it is St.Anthony's day, and the Lisbon local holiday!!
    Travel guides sometimes are no good...

  7. Beautiful photographs. Before I visited Canberra I'd not have known how beautiful it is, particularly around the lake. Also what a fascinating building is Parliament House - or whatever it's called. I forget but loved my visit.

  8. I've tried to do some photos in the fog too, yesterday...Strange atmosphere.

  9. Wonderful photo. For me it's always strange to see golden leaves now because here it's summer and 'downunder' it's obviously autumn.

  10. I love the foggy photos. They look mysterious and scary.

  11. Oh Sally, that's exactly how things have been in South Shields for almost two weeks. The stuff keeps hanging on to the coast, desparate for some sunshine, but I caught plenty people sitting on the beach in the fog!

  12. so that's what happens when you get on the starship Enterprise, you wake up in Canberra!!
