Been offline for a week and due to heavy workload decided to take a break. Have to say it feels like a year though :>) Happy to report that unusual winter rains occured last week & we were blessed with 10 inches or 200mm of rain. Our dams & tanks are again filled which means we have water now until at least the end of the year.

Now I'm off to catch up with a lot of galleries...may take me days but I will get there I promise.

Wow, very good news about the rainfall....I love the light and shadows in this shot, as well as the way the water as sculpted the sand around the rock and shell.

Now usually that much rain would be a pain, but given how dry you guys are, it sounds like a godsend!

Laine good news about the rain. Your photo tells me to take time off and go to the beach house and walk on the beach.
