I remember reading that the Dust Bowl made it easy to be a real estate agent: buyers could just sit in the office and watch the farms blow by.

Seriously, this is no accident, folks. Just as predicted, global warming has expanded the tropical zone, and that expansion has pushed a dry zone outside the tropical zone into areas like Texas, the Southwest, and Australia. China is building water pipelines.

Your use of the sepia tones really makes these shots special. They evoke a sadness in me because it appears that hard times may be coming. I hope that the rain comes soon.

If you haven't, you must read Egan's "The Worst Hard Times."

Didn't live in the 30's but have farmed land that looked like that. I pray for rain for all of the drought area.

UPDATE: Congratulations Tim.

Really! Is this a sepia tone, or is that the real color of the landscape? Looks like Dorothy's Kansas in the Wizard of Oz!

Hello , my name is Tim . I live in the small farming community of Ropesville , Texas with my wife and photo partner Sherry . I got involved with photography because of my older brother Steve - a fantastic photographer who lives outside of Seattle , WA . My favorite work , apart from his , is a terrific book entitled " Ghosts in the Wilderness " by Tony and Eva Worobiec . It captures the remains of small , abandoned rural communities across the Midwest , much of it shot in black and white . I also have become a fan of photographer Jim McGuire . His black and white shots ( nashvilleportraits.com) are amazing . Thank you for your comments and have a GREAT day !
