Thunderstorm Damage

The photo above was taken on Friday, July 18 at the Barton Public Library after we had moved inside to make our bug shirts. If you click on the photo and view it full size you will see the horses in the field down below. You are looking from the library parking lot into the middle of Barton Village where there are many horses and barns. I went back out to the parking lot for more photos to see what the weather was going to do. It wasn't going to do good. The winds were so strong that the windows of the library bulged ever so slightly. And one of the trees in front of the library was blown down. On our way home after the storm, Wingnut and I saw several other huge trees toppled over in Barton. An earlier storm burned down the Sheffield Federated Church. The photo below was taken through the big library window just after the tree blew down. The beige house across the street is Community National Bank. The brick building is the historic Barton Academy and Graded School.

When clicked, these photos will open, full size, in a new window.

  1. I don't think there's a thing you could have done to improve the top photo - just absolutely beautiful!!!
    And the 2nd photo is a great storm damage photo and the trees frame the scene nicely.

  2. The top photo is a stunner... I am none the less sorry you had to have such a storm so close by to be able to get it.. gladyou are alright.

  3. Um, this is not meant as criticism but merely curiosity: That storm photo was "improved" wasn't it? The halo around the trees sure looks like an artifact of alteration.

    Great photo. Stunning.
