We had a wind storm on Friday that caused a lot of damage across my region in Southwestern Ontario. There were wind gusts of up to 100 km/hr and some areas suffered power outages lasting several hours because of downed trees and hydro lines. There wasn’t any real damage in my neighbourhood, but today at the park Jack and I found a small uprooted tree and several large branches down. I’m worried that our little wooded trail in the country will also have suffered damage. There are quite a few trees there in precarious condition and it’s prone to storm damage. I plan to take Jack tomorrow to check it out.
I really like the first shot, there is a dissonance between the calmness of that landscape and the uprooted tree that is very interesting. I’m sorry about the damage, though.
FB friends were posting pictures of fallen trees over the weekend. The size of some of them! I hope your little wooded trail isn’t too badly torn up.

Sorry about the damage.
The first is poignant. Both do have this after the storm, quiet character that works well.
