We saw a recent post about what canberra is to people. And the responses ranged from clean air to lack of traffic to arts and culture.
However, there is another thing that strikes me about Canberra and it occured this morning.
The morning was crisp and still. The air clean and fresh. As I drove to work the sun glinted through a soft mist that hung over Ginninderra Creek. Passing Lake Ginninderra one could not help but notice how still and calm the waters were with the only ripple being from a number of ducks as they paddled their way across the water. The sky, with the sun low on the horizon, was flecked to the east with wispy grey and pink clouds that seemed to change colour with the position of the sun.
A stunningly beautiful morning, and one of the reasons why I like this place.
