Images of Canberra – Captain Cook Fountain in Blue

johnboy 19 June 2005 5

Geoffco has kindly been down to the lake after dark to take some pictures of our waters-edge architecture lit up in a rather morbid blue. I’ve picked out one of the Captain Cook Fountain because it’s the most striking effect of the bunch IMHO.

Captain Cook fountain lit in blue.

The city’s looking a lot like Peter Jackson’s depiction of Minas Morgul. I’m not sure that’s a great thing but it certainly isn’t boring.

At the moment, just blue for world refugee day.

but i’m given to understand that this very photo has been torn fromour site and has circulated widely within the NCA with much self-congratulation.

So I imagine they’ll be flogging this horse to death with a variety of colours in the months and years to come.

When the water is coming out it looks eerie.

It would explain why there were people sitting in the water jet boat a few days ago.
