Typhoon wreckage

Wrecked ships

Your View contributor Jeffrey Liam took this photo of fishing boats stranded inland after Typhoon Ketsana struck Vietnam last September.

Liam’s photo has a well-composed balance of elements and color.  The muted earth colors of the sand and the woman’s shirt are contrasted by the punched-up blue of the sky and the turquoise of the ship’s hull.  Her eyes also help lead the viewer’s attention to the detailed planking of the ship.

This photo communicates the devastation brought on by the typhoon through the simple engagement of a woman with her landscape.
