National Carillon, Canberra, Australia
Autumn in Canberra is regularly defined by chilly and very calm mornings. This occasion created perfect conditions for a long exposure before sunrise with the backdrop of the National Carillon.
Located on Aspen Island, Lake Burley Griffin, the 50 metre high National Carillon was a gift from the British Government to the people of Australia to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the national capital. Queen Elizabeth II accepted the National Carillon on behalf of Australians on 26 April 1970. John Douglas Gordon, after whom the Aspen Island footbridge is now named, played the inaugural recital.
