Weekly Photo Challenge: Delta Technology Change

`Delta

On a recent visit to the Science and Technology museum In Milan Italy , the beauty of  a picture of the Nile Delta in Africa from outerspace caught my eye. It looks like an artwork with warm colours signifying the heat in that area of the world, browns showing the sandy desert and blues water and cooler areas. Only change and transition in development of technology can allow images like this to be rendered .

On the other side of the technology spectrum, I took this photo of a hundreds year old weir system in Luzern. When snow melts on the Alpine mountains in summer the river Reuss becomes swolen with melted snow causing a flood hazard to villages further down the river. This wooden weir system today still controls the amounts of water flowing down the river.
