It's safe to say that we're all very worried about our drought situation. I decided recently that I would start a photo project to document the drought rather than complaining about how hard it is to find subjects that weren't completely dried out.
Yesterday, I set out with the intention of taking images that I could use in comparisons - this is what it looked like four years ago when rain was adequate, this is now all dried out.
I got sidetracked. I headed up one of the creek beds which had retained much of the small rainfall (a whole 1.02 inches at our place) that we received this last week. The feeling of moisture and the heavenly fragrance of growing things were delightful, even as I knew they won't last.
