The Carillion

The Carillion

The National Carillion, located on Aspen Island in Canberra, was a gift from the British Government to the people of Australia to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Capital. It contains 55 bells and is played regularly throughout the year with its 50m elevation allowing its tones to ring out across Lake Burley Griffin.

Due to the Lake Burley Griffin foreshore reconstruction going on this angle was hard to get due to the large amount of fencing currently in place. From experience I can pass on that hurdling large fences in suit pants is not a good idea, but hey I got the shot.

  1. I like the way you frame-up your shots. It serves them very well.

  2. stunning, you’re really getting amazing results from your camera, Michael. Shows that I don’t need to spend 6k on a Canon 5d mkII. I really like the reflections on the water

  3. VERY nice shot Michael – one of the better shots from Canberra that I have seen. Well done !
    cheers,

  4. Great work Michael, nice blues, right exposure on the water and the drooping willows I assume work really well in the frame.
