Artist's Description

When I drove to the shore of Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra, the national capital, this morning (Friday, 18 February) I honestly thought I was wasting my time. Thick grey cloud blanketed the city, but I parked the car and explored the lake anyway, more in forlorn hope than in expectation.

Shortly after sunrise, the cloud cover thinned out marginally, allowing me a partial glimpse of the sun as it coated the water gold. I sat there patiently from just after 6am, and this shot was taken at 6.55am – but the wait was well worth it!

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F11, 1/350 sec, ISO 200, focal length 58mm.
