There are a lot of great pictures of flooding in India and Bangladesh. This unusual shot of villagers running for relief supplies has an epic quality. Most good news photos are cropped tight so they can be read quickly in any size; I could study this one for hours.
Villagers run to receive relief packages air dropped for flood victims at Darbhanga district, in the northern Indian state of Bihar, Saturday, Aug. 4, 2007. Torrents of water washed away homes, crops and cows, leaving hungry and frightened villagers perched in treetops or on roofs.
