Well... I have something to say: it was worth waiting for these photos.Loved them both but the first one for me is unique.
Thank you!I have always loved trees, cottonwoods especially, and the loss of all our trees was devestating to me...
WoW - number two- I love it!!!
Storms here on the prairies, especially supercells, can be absolutely breathtaking...I used to go out in them, to get pictures for the newspaper, but after the tornado destroyed my house aboe my head and the town I was born and raised in, I see them differently..,.
Very different and beautiful, both of them. :)Happy weekend!
WOW... what a picture the second one..., and what a story..., so sad in a way also. Many years to let tre tree grow big, and then gone for seconds...Nice weekend to you, from Norway.
Thank you!Yes, it is a sad story... But we are rebuilding, and replanting, and are stronger for coming through this together!
excellent photos but the second its fantastic.
I really like the second photo!
That is sad but I'm so glad you have the pictures.
Thanks!Me too... :)
The tree shot blew me away.. it's a beauty it really is. Both are fantastic for Sky Watch
Sure do love those trees reaching for the sky! And the sky solo--beautiful too.
That's such a shame. The trees are magnificent.
wow. Beautiful pictures.
Beautiful pictures but sad so much was destroyed
Thanks for sharing...nice trees..I love both of themHave a lovely weekend
I'm here, Anita! I check your Prairie Visions often, I just don't always leave a comment. Maybe I need to... ```/ (o o) --oOO--(_)--OOo--...I don't know if that will post right.Love the shots. Great that you captured them while they were still there.
Hi moonshadow! :)I usually know who's been here because of the stats! :)Every shot I have of the town as it used to be is precious to me now... :)
I love the perspective of the first photo, and the colors in the second one are beautiful.
Thanks!Nothing prettier than a prairie sky, even when it's angry!!
Hi, These are absolutely beautiful.The tornado must have been a devastating experience but it's good to know you are all working together to rebuild your community.
Corporations and experts from all over the world are helping us rebuild as a Green Town, and the city council made a historic ruling that all city building will be built to be LEED-certified platinum... There are so many exciting things going on here!!www.greensburggreentown.org
Anita, I love the second shot very much. Great post.
Oh my gosh! What a shame! Love those cottonwoods and the perspective you got in the shot!
Thanks!Those trees were so tall...
Oh, those big, ole cottonwoods...how beautiful they are. Such a shame to lose them.Was anyone killed in that horrible tornado?Lubbock had one in 1970 that was really bad but not as much destroyed, I'm sure, as the one you had.Both these pics are so amazing, Anita girl.bj
oh, and i meant to ask....where were you and your family during this tornado? in a storm cellar, i am assuming.
Oh my gosh - the photos are great - but the devastation sounds horrible.
We lost 10 people in that tornado... Most of them people I'd known my whole life... Almost all of them people who never thought it would hit here and wouldn't go to the shelter... and paid the price...You can read my story of the tornado in three parts at Prairie Dreams, in the archives for the month of December... I've reduced the links here, if you'd rather..Pt. 1http://tinyurl.com/2g94eqpt. 2http://tinyurl.com/23bdawPt 3http://tinyurl.com/27an9k
I put links to those in the sidebar of Prairie Dreams... :)
Both picture are great, but I love the second one.:d
Yesterday was a doozy .. and I posted my photo late.. you must have posted after I did .. sorry I didnt get here sooner.. those are just wonderful .. as all your photos are ..
Heartbreaking in the beauty of these pictures you take...I understand it my friend. The trees, the storms. Thank you. God Bless you Anita and all the residents of Greensburg...
Glad you are safe and have beautiful photos for memories. Love that first photo so much!
OMG, I am so sorry for your tragedy. The photos, I hope, bring back happy memories of the past and not painful feelings of loss. They are beautiful. The green is wonderful. My SWF is here. Thank you.
I really love the tree photo Anita! The perspective is GREAT!
