019 – A Sunny Wintery Day in Canberra

Recently i got a Canon SX 20 IS. I thought i didnt need to buy another camera, but this one had all the features i wanted. Wide optical range, like an SLR,SD Card, AA batteries (A bottomless cup of energy when travelling). It can also be a camera which could be put in a backpack for hiking.

After the marathon the day before I was told to go out for an easy ride / light jog and help exercise the muscles so i took the camera and went for a bike ride around Lake Burley Griffin.

Images have been uploaded at maximum resolution.

All in all, i’m happy with my purchase and hopefully get a lot of use out of the camera.
