Not a drop to drink

Drought. The word raises a shiver -- and if it doesn't, it should. Australia is having a rough time with water shortages now, and in the last few years the water restrictions have started to bite. We're not rationed yet, but what you can do with water is strictly legislated! This picture was taken on the Fleurieu Peninsula in February 2008, almost a year ago at the time of this writing. It's summertime, and it's ... hot, dry, bright. Relentless. The camera would have been one of the Fujis; the conditions were perfect for digital cameras, and I have no doubt I left the camera to take care of everything -- I would have been too busy sweating to worry about the details!
