Canal Series

I love taking pictures of canals. Living and farming in the desert, canals are our life-blood. Without water this place is nothing but sagebrush and jack rabbits. Our annual precipitation is less than 12" and most of that comes in the winter months. In the summer we average far below 1" per month. Not enough to grow any crop or even support livestock.

The first picture was taken May 5, 2009. The second was taken May 9, 2007. Same canal, same check, four days short of two years apart. Different ball.
