Texas is in the middle of a severe drought. Everything is so dry that just pulling over on the side of the road to take a picture is enough to start a fire. Last week, I witnessed a large grassfire that was started by a man mowing his lawn. Hopefully we’ll get some rain soon. In the meantime, I’ve fallen way behind on the blogs I normally visit but I’ll try to catch up soon. Also, check out The Daily Shooter if you get a chance. I’ve got an article on night photography coming up and you’ll probably recognize some of the regular contributors.

    Great shot, looks like a very desolate place. Too bad about the weather, I would give you some of my rain…

    The article is great! A lot of details included. I will read it more in depth later.

    You’ve achieved a great capture of “dry.” I can almost hear that little yucca plant (or whatever it is) in the foreground panting, “Water!”

  3. beautiful landscape, nice colors contrast bt sky and dry grass…i like the tree lines in the background, and the yucca trees in the foreground is another focal point here…great capture:-)

    I can really see how dry and crisp the grass is. Read you article on night photography, and it’s got me all reved up. Gonna be trying that as soon as the weather warms up and the snow melts.

    Glad there wasn’t a fire in this picture. This is a wall hanger here.

    Great shot. You can see how parched it is through this one. Looks around my area at the moment too. Unfortunately its storm season which makes things even worse. Lightning to start the fires.

    You can have some of our rain from here in Liverpool if you want, we have more than enough. That does look so dry, i can imagine the damage caused by even just one carelessly discarded cigarette.
