We had some terrible flooding here in Western Massachusetts from Hurricane Irene (see earlier blog post for photo’s). My backyard is the Green River, a place I walk nearly every day. It has changed so much since the storm… some places hardly recognizable. Once the river went down enough and places were not so muddy that I could actually walk and not sink, I discovered some amazing beauty. There is an area were the earth is caked with clay and silt… large cracks nearly a foot deep everywhere the clay is drying. I came upon this one area where the leaves remained on top of the clay as the area around the leaves settled down with more rain a week later. I don’t know if the photo’s can capture the perfection of this magnificence of nature.
