Cloud Drama

Uploaded by: Piddler1

Friday October 12, 2012

Los Angeles, CA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: After a record-setting hot summer, we finally got our first rain! I cruised to my favorite LA area park for a snapshot... This is the former site of the Baldwin Hills Reservoir which suddenly collapsed with the fury of a thousand cloudbursts in 1963, taking lives and destroying hundreds of homes on the slope below. The serenity one enjoys in this (now filled and landscaped) basin stands in marked contrast to the tragedy that occurred here, 50 years ago.

Manufacturer: Canon

Model: EOS 450D

Thanks Dave, Wanda, and Boyd! It was a choice of taking the dog to the park or watching the Space Shuttle Endeavour traipse through the streets of LA today with twenty thousand spectators in tow...

 And I thought the park was crowded! :)

I just downloaded the free shareware "Radical Image Optimization Tool" to do my Tif to Jpeg reductions but it's not transferring the exif info.... Gurrr!

Sorry about that!
