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.
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.
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.
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.
