Sunrise on Lake George. Images of Canberra

lake george sunrise

What looked like 100m dash turned out to be a solid hike in muddy water.

Arrived at the edge of the lake at 6:20am – just in time for me to find a gigantic birds nest (not sure what type) and a spectacular sunrise with very fast moving clouds and light 🙂

Nikon with Sigma 10-20mm – All RAW processed in Photoshop – The next one is HDR – Gumboots

How big were the eggs? I would hazard a guess at them being swan eggs. They tend to build nests like that.

Great set of photos.

Decent size eggs (tennis ball size but stretched) – did not think eagles nested on the ground – but eggs looked similar – going to find out now. Swan was spotted in the vicinity, but flew off as I approached. Eagle would of had my eyes more than likely 🙁

Gee, a photographer admitting he uses Photoshop. What is the world coming to?

Number 4 is my favourite. Very well done indeed.

Spectacular!

They’re brilliant…..2 and 4 would make perfect desktop backgrounds if you had the high res ones…thought about offering them to Visit Canberra or somewhere…bit of local imagery?

Nice work!
Anyone who gets up that early at this time of year deserves to be congratulated even without stunning photos. 🙂

I like the eggs best; a little more restrained. The slightly different colours are beautiful.

You are very clever with light!
