Eighty Percent

Down below the lookout is this great and unexpected view of Lake Burragorang - Sydney's water supply now at a 80 percent full - how good is that.


Here it is in May 2009 - 58 percent full



And in March 2007 during the drought, a scary 34 percent.

  3. Those are such interesting photos -stunning in their comparison. Here in South Australia our water situation sometimes gets even more panicky hence the new desalination plant. Thanks for sharing this!

  4. A great series of photos to sow the levels. It looks great today. Our Wivenhoe Dam is about 80% full they have been letting water out on and off since the last floods. They want to get it down to 75% in case we have heavy rains again this summer. It is a hot topic at the moment as it hasn't rained for a month.

  8. Terrific series of comparions here, Joan. What someone thought to be clouds, I thought to be the bottom of the lake.

    Not keen on that 34% full image ...

  9. I like the 34% image but not what it represents.
