A little bit to the left, and you get the top of the roof of a dam mechanical control building and a parking lot. A little to the right and you get the river bank with some fairly ugly houses at the top. A little bit more up and you get power lines. A little bit down and you get the line of buoys and a warning sign for boaters: ‘warning dam straight ahead’.
Holding the camera in just the right spot, and after taking twenty or so photos that include one or more of the items noted above, the Nashua river doesn’t look so bad.
