I tried this once before last year. Optimistically, I engaged some of my readers and encouraged them and myself to go out and photograph the drought, only to realize that it really is much harder than it seems. How many pictures of brown lawns, dried up streams, dead fish, reservoirs near dead pool, or fallowed fields does anyone want to look at? Besides, I have come to the conclusion that this is because in a lot of ways, drought impacts are more human impacts. But, nonetheless, in this fourth year of exceptional drought, I set out last week, camera in hand, and committed myself to posting the results.
And so here they are. Caveat: This is all complicated stuff.
