Cool little gem I found while pheasant hunting this past year. Looks like a bullfrog couldn’t make it to water fast enough. This is a good reason on why I hunt, I would have never seen some of the coolest and beautiful things that I have witnessed if it wasn’t for the sport. It’s more than a harvest of an animal it’s the overall experience and memories made. #bullfrog #driedup #drought #cool #foundagem #skeleton #middleofnowhere #remington #870 #wingmaster #12guage #benelli #nova #fields #views #californiahunting #deadstuff #vortex #ziess #memories #crazyshit #thehandsomeoutdoorsman

1.23.28 @abcnews Tree trunks stand in the critically low #Theewaterskloof Dam in Villiersdorp, #South Africa, Theewaterskloof Dam is the single biggest dam supplying water to #CapeTown . The water supplies of one of the world's top tourist destinations, South Africa's Cape Town, have dwindled even further than predicted, prompting authorities to adjust their estimate of when taps could run dry. City officials have moved up "day zero" -- when taps are expected to run dry -- by nine days, to April 12. A 1.4-percent drop in dam levels prompted the change a week after the city had said April 22 would likely be Cape Town's "#dayzero ," officials said Monday. The city is now estimated to have enough water for less than 80 days. The premier of South Africa's Western Cape province, Helen Zille, wrote to #SouthAfrica #President #JacobZuma calling for the declaration of a national disaster, saying the drought has escalated from a threat to an imminent crisis. #Water would have to be driven in from other provinces. After three consecutive years of #drought , the city’s dams, sourced by rainfall, were sitting at just over 27 percent, the city said. The debilitating water shortage has forced city government to implement a controversial online water consumption map, which allows residents to check up on their neighbors’ water habits based on households’ municipal bills. With an estimated 3.74 million people in 2016, Cape Town is the second-most populous city in South Africa behind #Johannesburg . It is the provincial capital of the Western Cape. @zef_alien
as we suffer through the Great Fork Drought of January 23rd, 2018, remember that melon does not require a fork. in fact, it encourages us to find the strength in ourselves to seize the melon and our futures with BARE DIGITS AND FEAST. #drought #melon #baredigits #noforks
I am at a complete and total loss as to what to do for the dire #water #crisis happening in #Capetown . The rainy season is apparently over, they’ve been rationing water and that ration is about to get stricter but it’s only postponing the inevitable. In less than 90 days, there will be no water in this densely populated, major city and there will be evacuations. And I’m sure there will be pandemonium because humans panic when their lives and the lives of their children are in danger. And there will be loss of life. And the poorest people will feel the impact the most. And how will this city come back? And what does this mean for all of us? — because this is the fate for every city on the planet if we don’t get our shit together. This is not for play. We have got to start figuring out how we’re going to get our #brothers and #sisters some water and it has to be a long term solution and it has to be figured out like today. Hold Cape Town in #prayer . And then, let’s discuss what we can do and then let’s do what we can do. #southafrica #africa #watercrisis #drought
Draining it before the next shower. I let it over flow in the yard with the cover crop, you can hear the ground bubble absorbing the water, before it would just run off and set from the clay. #selfsustainability #rainwater #wateristhenewgold #fucknestle #drought #dontbescaredbeprepared #organicgardening #natureprovides #offgrid #usewhatyougot #minimalist #minimalism #gardening
"Not All Colour" - Took this B&W shot in Jasper National Park. My aim was to emphasize just how much the landscape changed due to drought and fires.

I went on a hike through #RockCreekPark to the #creek itself and took some #photos along the way. Rock Creek Park also happens to be a #nationalpark . Last pic in this post is a very pleasant #grassland situated behind the trees featured in the first pics. #riverbank #tree #winter #roots #drought #erosion #park #photography

#CapeTown in #SouthAfrica is about to become the first major city in the world to run out of water in April! People are no longer asked to stop wasting water. They are forced to stop wasting water. 💦 . .

Eryngium💙 An old world perennial that is perfect for drought-tolerant gardens💧 The name is thought to come from the Greek “eerungos” meaning “beard of the goat,” but I much prefer the common name: Sea Holly🦋✨ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #humbotany #botany #botanical #botanicalpickmeup #gardens #gardening #organicgardening #drought #droughttolerant #droughttolerantplants #plants #plantlady #planthunter #plantas #getoutside #natureisnurture #pnw #pnwonderland #wanderlust #exploretocreate #plantsmakepeoplehappy #botanize #seaholly #eryngium
Stay tuned! Area farmers and ranchers may be scheduling a rain dance 💃 in the coming weeks to help our chances of getting a Rain! After the severe drought that Texas went through in 2011-2012 I hope and pray we have a wet springtime and do not have to endure the hardships of a drought like that again. Please Pray for rain! Mainly because a bunch of older half dressed farmers dancing around wouldn’t be a pretty sight 🙅🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️😉 #ranching #farming #texas #igtexas #westtexas #drought

Our little market garden, late January 2018. It’s in a state of flux at the moment, much like us, as we seek the right balance between growing crops to sell and growing crops to eat. To this end we’re about to plant more household staples, fewer low value crops and more stuff that yields a high return. Greens will be a new focus, but only when the weather cools off and we get some rain. Don’t be deceived by the photo - just 4mm at the start of the month means it’s a lot drier here than it appears. #marketgarden #homesteading #smallholding #highvaluecrops #staplecrops #balance #drought #summeronthefarm #halfmoonfarm #hamptonqld

United effort to make Tygerberg a water-wise campus The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences' (FMHS) Green Committee is one of the organisations at Stellenbosch University that campaigns for the creation of greater awareness about the water crisis in the Western Cape. “We encourage personnel and students to use the information we disseminate in the monthly Impromptu newsletters and by means of social media as talking points," said Ms Christine Groenewald, project coordinator of the Green Committee. Groenewald recently attended an information session at SU's Tygerberg campus, where members of the FMHS' facility management shared their plans for sustainable, integrated and cost-effective solutions to counter the drought.

Beautiful evening in Blouberg - dark clouds surrounding the ocean with deep hopes for some rain #blessed #capetown #blouberg #tablemountain #robbinisland #atlanticocean #darkclouds #drought #rainydays
There’s always hope
TB to a Mobile McDs cafe in the middle of nowhere... Actually this was on the west coast of South Africa near Lambert’s bay... You might not be able to use water, but at least there’s a hot cup of coffee and a breakfast sandwich waiting after you paddle in. Hey @mcdonalds_za , how about drive through water? #foodforthought #backtobasics #globalization #globalización #needsvswants #foodindustry #foodtruck #gopro #hero5black #vanlife #sprintervanlife #drought
Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens with my favourite 👫💚 It was incredible to walk around the gardens. The mountains towered over us, even though the park was huge! Bits of it reminded me of Jurassic Park and my favourite part was walking across the tree canopy bridge. Cape Town is in a terrible drought and apparently the park is usually much more colourful, but sadly some of the plants are struggling rather a lot. Universe bring rain to CT soon please, it’s getting serious and they need their damns filled ASAP ☔️. . . . .#capetown #drought #rain #botanicalgardens #kirstenbosch #park #universe #positivethinking
Next level tip#10 : buy bottled water for drinking etc. Four notes a) check where water is coming from b) check whether plastic is recyclable (number in triangle) c) if it concerns you, check other number in bottle to avoid BPA. Seems 1,2,4and5 are ok (1 in top left pic) d) store in cool area out of direct sunlight ... #savewater #cityofcapetown #drought #thinkwaterct
Starting to feel the heat. 😨😦 This was at 8:30pm tonight. What use to be a ten minute exercise took 45min just to fi fill one 25L drum with water. Its amazing how the anxiety is effecting everyone's behaviour. People were so rude to one another, shoving woman and children out the way to get to one of the 15 taps at Spring Way. It was quite scary and this is just the beginning. On top of it the traffic cops decided that it was a perfect opportunity to fine people who had parked along the pavement. I got a R500 fine even though I was parked neatly, out of the way, 500m away from the crowds. So low. I'm stocking up on water daily but even the shops are becoming so full with people buying trolley loads of water. Day Zero is going to be unreal. • • • • • #crises #disaster #capetown #news #huffingtonpost #capetimes #argus #drought #dry #nowater #helpus #dayzero #scary #southafrica #timelapse #natgeo #nationalgeographic

No this isn’t a pretty edited picture that suits my Instagram feed. This is a warning too everyone. Our drought is not gonna get better unless people actually fucking wake up and do something! It pisses me off too think that there are still people who don’t care, who don’t save water. So can everyone please just fucking co-operate! This isn’t some other situation that will get better easily, this isn’t another situation where other people will fix it for us. This is a real life problem that we are facing. WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS! WE NEED WATER! SO WHY THE HELL DO SOME PEOPLE THINK IT IS OKAY TOO WASTE WATER! Every drop counts so don’t think that wasting a tiny bit of water doesn’t matter because IT DOES. So please. PLEASE HELP TOO SAVE WATER OR ELSE WE ARE GOING TOO PUT OURSELVES INTO A POSITION WHERE WE WONT HAVE RUNNING TAP WATER, WE WILL PROBABLY HAVE TOO SHOWER WITH A BOTTLE OF WATER WE BOUGHT FROM A SHOP! AND IF ANYONE WANTS TOO DISAGREE WITH ME THEN GO AHEAD! I don’t know why anyone would want to disagree anyways.

For completing my photo project on "winter activites in Iran" I booked a one week trip to visit the country in January. As I remember from the time I was living in Iran, the high mountains always became white from November, so January was a reasonable time for winter activites. My friend @tarikssalem also joined me, it was his first visit to the country and he was also quite excited to run on persian powder! We booked our flight in early December and since then we were checking the weather forecast week by week! But this year was phenomenolly different! So as the picture shows we ended up standing on 3960 m Tochal summit staring at snowless four thousands peaks. Even Damavand, which is 5619 m, had just a dust of snow.
Been pouring it down since last week Thursday , surly this has had an impact on the Theewaterskloof dam ? #capetown #drought #theewaterskloof

Since June 2017 MTH and I have taken 47 #repeatphotos of landscapes in the #easternkaroo of the Eastern Cape and there are at least another 20 of Piet Roux's historical photos to retake in the next few months. Having a great time capturing #landscapechange in the Karoo as part of my #PhD on assessing long-term changes on #rangelands in these parts! #rangelandecology #karooecology #sheepfarms #cattlefarms #climatechange #landusechange #drought
A few have survived the drought so far. Others were not so lucky. (23 January 2018) #drought #whenwilltheraincome
