Old Friends, Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra

By BobinAus
These three boats have been moored at this spot on Lake Burley Griffin for many years. I doubt that they are sailed any longer. They are certainly showing the signs of age and neglect but the pale morning light hides the peeling paint. A large flock of seagulls circled the boats, over and over again, shrieking raucously as only seagulls can. Not my favourite bird! I tried to eliminate them Grin with slow shutter speeds but the slowly moving boats became unacceptably blurred. A duration of 1.3 sec strikes the right balance, at least to my eye, rendering the flock almost as wispy cloud.

Thanks a million Pam. I was very lucky with regard to the the sunrise colours. Very quickly the sky became dull and grey and stayed that way all day.
