Default More Stumps

As the lake recedes in the face of a record California drought, more stumps appear. There is a desolate beauty to the scene.

G'day PB

This image reminds me of so much - but first - it does something for me

I am drawn to the mono treatment; the starkness of the stumps: the pano-style format emphasises the subject; you've chosen max DoF to give the whole image its sharpness ... I could go on & on. To my eye, it's great

And also, it is a scene we see in Oz so much of the time too - massive drought across much of eastern Australia at the moment too - some farmers are into their 3rd year of drought where the 2013 rainfall was only 20% of their usual rain

California is now in an official state of water emergency. We should have three feet of snow in our yard and today I watered the rose bushes. The scene is where I often kayak. Its bizarre.

Default Water Worries

In addition to being a great shot this is a scary situation. Living in Arizona we are having a similar problem. I have read that 70% of the water used is for crop irrigation which has it's own implications. It's real simple-no water-no living things. Hope things change soon.
