Some of the desert lands of California such as death valley, and here in Elizabeth lake, are currently experiencing a large quantity of wildflower blooms adding a vibrant burst of color to otherwise dry and desolate lands. However, places I was expecting to see wildflowers and poppies flourish, such as Lancaster Ca. and it’s poppy reserve, were a dry and sad let down when visited.
Trying to make a nice image of a spot which now brings a sigh of sadness as this once wonderful recreational spot we know as Elizabeth Lake in the Antelope Valley now shows the signs of the seriousness of California’s drought. Where I had captured this image, at one point in time I would be waist deep or above in water.
