welcome springs

2

In California, an extremely wet winter put an end to the state’s record-breaking drought. Heavy rainfall also produced welcome spring scenes — like replenished reservoirs and fields in bloom.

“It’s a completely different look,” says Justin Sullivan, a Getty Images photographer who took before-and-after style photos of drought-stricken areas. “It’s just like a velvety green, lush landscape now — compared to just dry, brown, almost like a moonscape before.”

Sullivan’s photos show how one of the wettest winters on record is bringing the land back to life. In early 2014, Sullivan documented the drought at its worst. He shot photos from a helicopter above reservoirs like Lake Oroville.
