Lake Hodges Lakebed

After a dry winter of 2011/2012 and the summer following, the water level of Lake Hodges has dropped so much that the entire easternmost arm near the pedestrian bridge and I-5 is almost without water by now.

In other areas of the lake there is now brackish water that attracts White Pelicans – it was fun to watch them swim around and simultaneously dive to dabble for food. Having on a 35mm prime lens on the camera for my casual walk with Toni wasn’t really that helpful to make photos of the birds though, so here’s another “single”. I quite like the abstract weirdness of this image.
