Pereiras Dam in Ourique, Portugal. The dam, that holds a 3 year water suply for local farmers, was empty through the summer due to the serious drought. 2005 was the most dry of the last 75 years in Portugal. 22/06/2005
Water is, without a doubt, a precious element in our lives. Drought 1 by ~leonidas187 show us the effects of a drought on Earth.

I remember... both 2005 and 2006 were really terrible on the whole Iberian peninsula (Portugal and Spain), on the latter year this massive Saharan dust cloud blew into the west of Europe right on summer season. It was very displeasing...
This looks just like California! I think we all need to get together and do one big rain dance or something! Not good! Most excellent capture and I hope you get some rain soon! Congratulations on the DD!
