It's The End of The World As We Know It. by catch---22 It's The End of The World As We Know It. by catch---22
... and I feel fine.

----------
early may of 2010 brought destruction as several tornadoes churned over this lake and surrounds. this is debris from a marina about 1/3 - 1/2 of a mile down the beach to the right and around a bend. it comes to light now because mother nature has been showing us her power in another way... 2 years of drought and even the possibility of winter water rationing. I don't remember ever having that before. this was missed in the cleanup because at the time it was 15 feet under water.

as a youth I often admired some iconic images taken during the "dust bowl" times. My Grandmother told stories of stuffing cheese cloth around every window sill as a girl. I never dreamed I might have the chance to take some of the same subject. I think I will make an effort to start documenting more of this drought. unfortunately it approaches historical proportions.

You might have quite a bit more than drought to document... and I' a lot closer to that period than you...

A natural disaster, and you photographed it very well. This is a haunting image, the sense of loss permeates it. Excellent photography!
