Day 184 – Stump

This tree (not one of ours) was destroyed by a storm, not sure which one as we have had a couple of really bad ones the last few years, but just liked the way the “stump” looked.

    Thats quite dramatic, frightening the strength of a storm that can do this to something that is so incredibly strong…great capture and love the sharpness !

      Thanks, we have had a few really bad storms in the last few years with a lot of tree damage up and down the east coast. Our trees thankfully have survived.

        We get tremendous wind living down on the coast here. A couple of years ago I had to go into town to the dentist during one of the really bad storms, it was frightening, the waves were coming right up and over the wall, flooding the road, the wind was so strong you literally had to hold onto something to keep your balance, one of my older daughters and Tess were with me, we both had a vice grip on Tess as she was being blown all over the place. On our way home, many trees had come down, branches strewn all across the roads, mother nature is a force to be reckoned with !!

        Wow…we have been lucky for the most part. We had internal damage to electronics from power outages and surges but no structural damage like some thankfully since we have 3 very big and old maples.

        Thank goodness for that, and too that the maples are still standing. We have been fine, no tiles off the roof, but fingers crossed for this winter as they are forecasting a bad one due to El Nineo (think that is how its spelt and I got the right El!?!?!), the last time it happened was the winter before we moved over to England and it was terrible from the photo’s we have seen, heavy snow, trees down etc, could be like living back in Canada again ! 🙂

        Nothing compared to you but for the UK with no real snow ploughs only tractors, at least down south anyway, its quite dire straits when it snows !

    We have a huge conifer tree in our front, when we get high winds I’m always thinking it’s going to be joining us in our living room one day! Great shot! 🙂

    It’s scary what a good storm can do, very interesting stump and beautiful photo.

    You did a great job capturing the remains. That is one of my fears… a tree falling on my house – we have many huge ones in our yard.
