Photographer's Note

The Captain Cook Memorial Fountain is in the capital city of Australia, Canberra. The nozzle of the fountain jet is a concrete collar about 5m across, situated some 150m from the lake edge. The nozzle can just be seen at the base of the water column. It is surrounded by small clearance buoys some 10m from the nozzle. Lake Burley Griffin is an artificial lake in the centre of Canberra, the capital of Australia. It was completed in 1964 after the Molonglo River—which ran between the city centre and Parliamentary Triangle—was dammed. It is named after Walter Burley Griffin, the American architect who won the design competition for the city of Canberra. The lake is used by recreational sailing and rowing boats, and by several sightseeing cruisers. At night, the nozzle is lit by a duplicated, fixed red clearance light / beacon.
