Unlike the wet countries that most of my blogging mates live in, Australia is not really known for its lakes. Unless you live in Tasmania or in the outback after a flood. A large percentage of lakes in Australia are really man made (thanks Joanne) reservoirs. Here is a small selection.


I could not help be reminded of the fantastic 1997 Australian film “The Castle” which may be lost on non-Aussies. I have not enough serenity in my life lately, so this theme could not be more timely. I have many serenity photos, so it was a struggle to decide which one, or more, to add. One it will be though. The serene Lake Eucembene in the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, Australia.
