Sky Watch
Looking for the Rain

120° Panorama

Boardwalk at the Marsh

Click on the photo and scroll back and forth
to see the receding water and drying marsh.

A skywatch for a serious reason. Looking for needed rain.

Nice one - panoramas can be very fun, and it looks as if you have had it.

PS Any experience with panorama and Polarising filters? It doesn't work for me.

Lynn said...

Wow. Great photo. I almost feel like I could step right into the picture.

Daryl said...

I hope you get some rain .. you can have some, no, you can have all of our's .. we've had way more than we need

Gosh, that's a beautiful panorama. Obviously you are skilled at perfecting those, no doubt!

I hope you and I will be successful at getting those rains we need so urgently!

Great panorama shot, and the earth really tells the story of the Texan drought this year.

That is a beautifully captured panorama. I think we have had your rain, but today we got a blue sky, so maybe we swapped it so you get the rain.

Troy and martha, what a wonderful shot. I can see that cracked earth just begging for water. I am wondering where the birds are. Our Monsoon has been mostly a no show this year with just a couple of storms, though it did rain this morning. El Nino is keeping us dry, dry, dry. I have only seen the desert toads a couple of times!

Nice panorama view, shame about the lack of rain, hopefully the weather will change for you soon.

Great photo panorama!

Beautiful photo, and very interesting to see the marsh recede and the ground needing rain. I live in Ireland so don't know what that's like... only know what it's like wishing it would STOP! Good luck and I hope your weather treats you well!

LV said...

Great shot of the Nature Center. Been there several times with my great grandson. It is a very interesting place to go if you like nature. We do. I may be your neighbor and not know it.

beautiful and tranquil.

Good panorama.

The same problem that we have here inAustralia with the wetlands drying up and the lovely walkways left high and dry.

Jim K said...

Nice panarama, we all are hoping for some rain.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great picture. Large parts of Texas seems to having a drought. Kind of scary.

Dewdrop said...

Beautiful! Panoramas are so beautiful!

Bob Johnson said...

Great shot and what a great idea the Panorama, will have to look into doing something like that.

flyingstars said...

Simply Beautiful!

Kelly said...

whoa.....I enlarged the photo and saw just how far down the pond is. Hope your rain comes soon. Beautiful panorama!

Brian Bastinelli said...

Cool image. I like the juxtaposition of the very dry mud and the obviously very wet body of water...

Very Nice!

Marvin said...

Great work on the panorama. Down on the coast, they're starting to hope for a hurricane -- or, at least, a tropical storm -- just so they can get some rain. Be careful what you wish for, I say.

Doug Taron said...

My first thought: Wow, awesome photo. That looks like a really interesting spot.

My second thought: I'd really like to check out those mud flats for tiger beetles. (Shocking, I know!)

BTW, great to have you back blogging again.

Fantastic Panaroma! I've been thinking long time now to do something like this. A tripod is a must for these kind of photos I guess but I still have to buy one! :-)
