This spacious aerial view of Lake Travis had me thinking about the water levels of the lake. Anytime Austin is experiencing drought conditions, it's very obvious when you see the Lake, which becomes a barometer for the area. Since moving back to Austin in 2011, I've become very aware of the growing extremes of drought and flood conditions here, and how precious that water is.
