The San Gabriel River is on the retreat. The Texas drought which now has hit extreme levels in about 80% of the state is causing this waterway to shrink to almost nothing. I shoot this location of the San Gabriel often and is one of my favorite places to photograph. While this scene was beautiful the sad part is I was standing on dry rock in the middle of the river bed that in most cases is flowing freely. The clouds that were building at sunset only teased the San Gabriel as they formed and then dissapeared not producing a single drop of rain.
