Spillway - Then And Now

One more set of photo's comparing 2008 with 2005.  The photo on the left was taken on 01/11/2005 and shows the water level in the debris basin was high enough to flow over the spillway.  The photo on the right was taken 12/29/2008 and shows an empty debris basin.  You get an idea of how much water was necessary to reach the top of the spillway.

Thanks again to Susam Immer, Park Programs and Resource Supervisor for Monrovia Canyon Park, for the photo from 2005.

I hope you don't mind me taking the easy route by copying and pasting this comment, it is by far the easiest method of getting my message to so many CDP photobloggers.
I am not sure that I can sustain South Shields Daily Photo much longer, it is so difficult to keep finding new material on a daily basis,
and after more than two years inspiration and motivation are becoming harder to find, so I may become less daily from time to time.
I hope you can find new hope and inspiration, and that a new start in 2009 brings everything that you desire.
The CDP photoblogging community has grown massively over the past year and I'd like to thank those who have visited South Shields Daily Photo, especially those who have been kind enough to leave a comment or two.
Best wishes for 2008

Keith, when the water level got that low (as on the right) the turtle disappeared. Not enough water, too much sun.

Cool shot & terrific comparison. From your early posts, I found my way to the USC digital library. Lots of really neat stuff there. I've contacted them and will ask for permission to use some of PV area.
