I was surprised to see quite a few trees come down over the Alplaus Kill In Charlton after Irene hit the area. This large tree in the background is what I believe is a Basswood tree. Whatever it is, it was quite a large tree. There were several other smaller trees taken down with this one and quite a few more down with a few hundred feet of this one.
This was taken with the D90, Sigma 10-20mm and a Cokin polarizer.
