Lake Cuitzeo, Michoacan, Mexico

"You don't miss the water 'til the well runs dry."  -Bob Dylan

You may not have known that today is World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought, I didn´t either until I picked up the morning paper.  Reminded me of this photo taken on Lake Cuitzeo in Michoac√°n a couple years back, the western extremity completely dry, abandoned fishing boats scattered along the shore.  Fortunately, the heavy 2010 precipitation filled it back up, but how long will it stay that way?

  1. Hi Brian. It looks like the lake has left everyone there high and dry. Much like what is happening here in Patzcuaro. This is my first time on this blog and am enjoying your pictures. I do a bit of photography myself. Thanks for the pictures and commentaries.
