Picturesque sunset in Massena

'I was hopeful that the sunset Aug. 14 would be spectacular, since there were interesting complexities in the evening sky -- so I chased it down,' said photographer Don Straight of Brasher Falls. 'However, some low cloud cover in the west obscured a direct view of the setting sun, so I looked for a location to make the subtle hues and cloud patterns more interesting. These were taken just north of the village of Massena, on the Pontoon Bridge Rd, where the St. Lawrence River drainage from the Intake Dam heads toward the Grasse River.'
