15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Thirsty Land

The struggle of keeping a healthy crop during another dry season can be a challenge. Buying water can also be very expensive for local farmers in Sacramento, CA. A little mercy from nature would help. I captured this photo during the extreme heat warning that was issued for Sacramento County. The heat was soaring around 109-111 F.
