Sky Watch and Drought Watch

Yesterday afternoon while out at a friends place I took advantage of the amazing views to snap a Sky Watch Friday pic. The point of interest is actually the lagoon. Can you see it? It is the large mass of dirt behind the house and before the road. A very sad sight. Dangars lagoon usually has a good variety of water fowl, breading black swans and the occasional pelican. When full its size is 49 hectares! Looking down I think it may be completely dry, I will have to go for a drive and investigate...
Well that is a pretty sad SWF post, hope yours is brighter!

Enlarging the photo I can see what a huge expanse of land it is~

Good sky watch. The cardinals you seen on my page were photographed in Hawaii, we do not have them in Pa., we have the northern cardinals here. I hope you enjoyed your stay in our state.

Looks strangely similar to our dams and a number of lakes in SA and Vic. that have returnes to being commons instead of hosting water sports. Beautiful shot.
