checking the levels at the lake

The dog and I enjoy walking at Lake Gwelup. He runs like a mad thing, while I delight in the wide expanses of nature, beautiful scenery and wildlife. Most years the lake dries over summer (although historically it didn’t). After heavy rains last spring* there’s still water, although every day the level drops. I found a spot on our walk which is nicely framed by the branches of flooded gums and I took photos of the water level throughout summer and autumn.
