When I look at your photograph I "feel" the light area on the right that "pushes" the dark area to leave the image.

Black and white gives this scene the drama that it deserves. Hopefully the dark clouds brought some rain to the area. Our dams here in Western Australia were very low for some years but they recovered slightly in the last year or so. We also have some desalination plants that have helped out to take the pressure of the dams.

Yes the B&W highlights the scary condition. I believe they are all more than 3/4s full now.
