Shooting Spree in the Storm: Forecast for Healthy Future

It was a dark and stormy night. I crept out of the house, weapon in my right hand ready to shoot.  My sunset shooting spree had begun in Elderwood, CA.

It was a dark and stormy night. I waited, lurking above the creek bank.

Woodlake Valley lies in the semi-arid fertile Kaweah Delta in Central California. It has suffered one of the worst droughts of recorded history with aquifers being depleted at an alarming rate.

The winding creek bed waits for rain.

Without rain, the world will lose thousands of acres of oranges, peaches, walnuts, grapes, dairies, rangeland, cotton, and all the food products it takes for granted that come from the Central Valley.

The Woodlake Valley grows thousands of acres of oranges as well as other fruits and nuts.

Our valley predominates in oranges. These stormy sunset shots foretell a brighter future for the life we love. Pray for rain.

Here are the rest of my futuristic shots. Some are taken looking away from the sunset. That ominous vista first attracted me. I think these need to be darker to show what I actually saw.

        1. Wish we had. It turned sunny in the afternoon, which Vince liked. He went outside and worked for a couple of hours in the yard. I took a nap and tried to get over my nasty cough. I think I did it – FINALLY! I am not a good sickie. 🙂
