The amount of water in Monrovia Canyon Park increased dramatically with the recent rains. The water level will drop quickly with a break from the rain, but the power of the water is still pretty impressive to see and hear. The photo is one of the check dams along the waterfall trail.

The rain has stopped but the water still flows over the top of the spillway in the distance.
Top: The debris basin looks just about how it did almost 6 years ago when we had some extended heavy rains in January 2005.
Bottom: The debris basin empty in November 2009.
Back on December 30th, 2008, I had posted another comparison of the debris basin empty with the debris basin full of water from January 2005. Compare that to the recent photo of the debris basin posted on MonroviaNow.com. Looks just about the same.

The lights on the "Big M" tell the story. At the conclusion of the game, the "M" changes to a "V" for Victory. Congratulations to the Monrovia Wildcats for becoming the CIF Southern Section Mid-Valley Division Football Champions!

The area looks like a giant clamshell was used to make an indentation in the hillside.
Photographing this is, more than anything else, a matter of being in the right place at the right time. I think I should have waited for the sun to climb a little higher. When the light is just right, it really stands out.
Still, I think you can see why they call the area "Clamshell".

I like to refer to it this time of year as Candy Cane Lane.
Due to prior commitments, I was unable to attend the Holiday Parade last night. Parades, especially nighttime parades, are both fun and a challenge to photograph. I really missed being out there.

A double dose of Time this morning.
It's Holiday Time in Monrovia with a few North Poles set up around the downtown area containing flyers on the activities taking place around town this month.
If you want to know what the time is right down to the minute, the Box Jewelers Clock in the background can provide that information.
To see how other photographers from around the world interpret the theme this month of Time, click on the link below:
