Paint this serene lake (Nerang Pool) from our national capital, Canberra.

Yes our capital is not Sydney, as you would think, but Canberra, about 4 hours down the Hume Highway!

I took this picture while visiting Floriade in 2014. The next one is Saturday 15 September until Sunday 14 October 2018.

"Floriade is a flower and entertainment festival held annually in Canberra's Commonwealth Park featuring extensive displays of flowering bulbs with integrated sculptures and other artistic features."
