Photo by @pedromcbride (Pete McBride) | I have spent nearly a decade focusing my lenses on fresh water challenges around the globe — from drying waterways like my backyard river, the Colorado (it stopped reaching the sea in the 90s) to other lifelines like the Ganges in India to receding glaciers in east Africa and beyond. In the process, I have witnessed how reliable access to clean, safe water can change not only lives but livelihoods. Amazingly, fresh water has become one of the greatest challenges we all face. Regardless of where you live in the world — water is our most precious resource and often the most ignored, least understood and typically taken for granted. The photo above is an aerial image of artery-like drainage tendrils in the dry Colorado River Delta, Mexico. Also check out today’s Instagram Story to see more of my photos and videos.
