Photohunters: Dusty


I don't usually think of a reservoir as being dusty but I took the first two shots during a severe drought.

The reservoir was at an all time low and the banks were dusty.

Dirt roads can be quite dusty and I imagine if I'd shot looking back instead of shooting towards the front of the car, I'd have a shot of dust in the next photo as it was quite dry.

I'd rather drive on the last dirt road when it is dusty as opposed to muddy or frozen. I was glad we didn't need to drive on it at all. We were on the paved road above it.

For the record, my house is always dusty but I couldn't bare to photography that for you. Click for the home of Photohunters and Happy Easter weekend.

Beautiful shots. I know only too well about dirt roads and how dusty they can be. Perfect shots for "dusty".

Nice shots Carver. I remember that drought and all the dust. I too could have taken photos of my dusty house but decided not to.

Happy Easter weekend!

I have lots of dust in my home. You can write your name anywhere. All of your photos are great.
Happy Easter!

Dirt roads (and trails) were one of the first things that came to my mind (too) for this week's Photo Hunt theme -- but yeah, definitely would never have thought of a reservoir as a place where I could get dusty-themed photos. So think you've got an original take on the theme there, Carver. :)

One of the first things I think of when I see a new trinket or an elaborate design in a frame or some element for a home, I think of dusting. Living on a dirt road won't help, so I decided against that.

I'm always sad when I see reservoirs so low. Hope the rains have come in your area to replenish it!
