Hot, wet, summer day with big clouds forming. Derby is on the right, Shelton on the left, looking north from the bridge between them over the Housatonic River. The chimneys are from old riverside factory complexes that are either derelict or repurposed.
Derby sits on hillsides at the confluence of the Housatonic and Naugatuck rivers. This leads to some of the streets being pretty steep.
The railroad bridge is no longer active. It's not the line that still runs a single track from Bridgeport up to Waterbury. The second bridge in the distance is part of the limited access section of Rt. 8. There's a walking/running path that follows several miles of the river shoreline.
