Canberra - Floriade 2009

posted on 1st of november, 2009

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. The festival attracts tourists from around Australia and overseas in spring from mid September to mid October each year, and is considered the most important regular event for tourism in the Australian Capital Territory. It is also called "Australia's Celebration of Spring".

This event started in 1988 as a one off celebration of Canberra's 75th birthday and Australia's bicentenary of European settlement. However even after this and due to the success and popularity of the event, it has run every year since then with each year having a new theme and is currently the largest flower festival in the Southern hemisphere with over 300,000 visitors each year.

Following are some of my selected images from this years Floriade:

About me

I'm a freelance and micro-stock professional photographer. I love my work and I see it as an art-form and a discipline of painting with light. To me it's a study of how light and shadow affects everything around us and our own and individual interpretation of the world that we live in.
