Drought by golftragic

Drought

Even the trees native to this area are giving up the battle. Conditions are getting well beyond a joke.
So incredibly dry and positively scary about the trees dying.

Well composed picture with heart breaking theme.

@dide Not wrong, on both counts. Trees I know first-hand to have been there for 50 years are turning up their toes.

@ethelperry Thanks Ethel, it's grimmer than I've seen in my 50 years of knowing this place.
February 12th, 2020  
Heartbreaking
February 12th, 2020  
A very sobering capture.
February 12th, 2020  
This is painful to see. Looks like a desert.
February 12th, 2020  
So devastating for those who depend on this land.

@jgpittenger And scary too.
February 12th, 2020  
@joysabin Very definitely.

@taffy I've known this land for 50 years during which time I've seen some awful droughts, but this one is the worst one yet and very widespread.
February 12th, 2020  
@ludwigsdiana Absolutely awful!
February 12th, 2020  
I am so sorry for you
February 12th, 2020  
Ouch 😣 not good, so sad to see ....
February 12th, 2020  
This is so sad to see. It’s hard to know what hardships this is causing to the people who try to live there but especially to the animals - heartbreaking!
February 12th, 2020  
Oh Marnie. You still have it all ahead of you. We too were astounded to see the native trees and vegetation giving up and dying. Our poor country is really being put to the test.
February 12th, 2020  
Such tough times for those on the land.
February 12th, 2020  
Annoying view - man's work...
February 12th, 2020  
This is such an eye-opening image. It's hard to image that this country could ever be anything but desert.
February 12th, 2020  
The ground looks like dust, painful to see the land like that!
February 12th, 2020  
@777margo Thank you.
February 13th, 2020  
@momamo Very bad, and very widespread, not to mention years of it.

@pamknowler Half a million cattle were lost in the Queensland floods last year for starters. The sheep that are run in the inland are very, very tough beggars, can exist quite well on medic or clover burr seed. But they don't thrive. Farmers are an innovative lot, and all sorts of things are happening - some better than others.

@ubobohobo Not wrong Margaret. Wouldn't be great if our 'leaders' could pull their heads out of the Canberra bubble and work together for some real action. Nah, they'd rather squabble amongst themselves.
February 13th, 2020  
@merrelyn Extremely, same in the West too, of course.
February 13th, 2020  
@haskar Yep, you're right so man had better work on fixing it!
February 13th, 2020  
@robz It's not classified as desert, annual rainfall is supposed to be around 12 - 13 inches but always highly (!!) variable. That said, there is a definite shift in the weather and rainfall patterns so goodness knows. After all, the Sahara used to be fertile ground.
February 13th, 2020  
@angelikavr Very much so.
February 13th, 2020  
Very tough conditions!
February 13th, 2020  
Hard life for the earth and the plants at the moment for sure.
February 13th, 2020  
@gilbertwood Bloody awful.
February 14th, 2020  
@casablanca Very much so.
February 14th, 2020  
Oh dear wish I could send you some of our rain
