I've realized I am not a photographer, I just take photos for fun, which is okay with me. For this weeks word, I was looking around my yard and noticed that we have some sorry looking trees, oddly shaped, tilted, dead branches, so I decided to go with the odd, strange, non-perfect trees and find some damage to photograph.
Almost a year ago, we had a pretty nasty tornado rip though the area near me and even though some of the trees have been down, cut up in chunks, split and chipped, there are still a bunch of trees that are down, leaning, broken, and split that have been left to Mother Nature.
I took a little drive and photographed some of this left over damage. These are near Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden.
These following few are from shortly after the tornado, further north along the Mississippi River.
(I love this artwork someone left on one of the huge stumps)
You can just make out an island below, that used to be a Heron Rookery. The island was full of trees that were full of huge Heron nests that were full of baby Herons and their moms. Dads could be seen flying around looking for their families that were no longer there. It was so sad.
