Water in the desert is always an interesting subject. I'm always looking at maps to investigate new lakes or rivers in the southwest... you never know what interesting scenery you'll find. You also have to know weather patterns and if lakes are low or high because each will uncover different aspects and qualities of that lake.


Since we've been in a drought for a number of years I've been exploring previous locations that I like to see if there's anything new to discover. In this particular lake I was expecting the water levels to be very low and expose new things I haven't seen before, but to my surprise the lake was actually higher than I have ever seen it. A few interesting subjects I had photographed before were now almost totally underwater. So I walked along the shoreline to see if I could find anything else to photograph. Low and behold the rising water had starting covering up these boulders, which were dry-docked the last time I visited. It really pays to revisit previous locations because you never know what has changed and what will surprise you.
