Rowles lagoon is near Credo station (about 70km from Kalgoorlie) and they have adjoining conservation parks reserves.
The lagoon occasionally fills up with the last time being in 2000 when a cyclone dumped lots of rain in the area. Once full it keeps water in it for a few years and attracts lots of birds and bird watchers. Believe it or not it is even sometimes possible to ski. That sign in the photo, however, says "Skiing Prohibited" which is fair enough as on our visit the lake was bone dry.

nice the view of this bone dry arid place with the sign to warn the visitors that the 'Skiing Prohibited'.
Good reportage shot of the place, that with the existance of water,to makes the area more effective and attractive to the visitors.

The strong warm cold colour contrast between the intense Aussie blue sky and the red earth is very eyecatching. I like the laconic sense of humour in the title too. 13 years is a long time to wait for any chance to water ski! The posts and road add good lead in lines and dynamism. Tfs!
