Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

I took these pictures last August, a day or so after Hurricane Irene swept through our area with her winds and flooding rains.  The ribbon of water that you can see is the mostly receded Deerfield River.  While the picture is bucolic, the damage that was left behind was staggering.  Sometimes a far view misses critical facts you’d see from a closer perspective.

The sun was starting to set, and this is clearly a westward image.  The other photographs were taken looking to the south minutes before taking this shot.
