Garlands for Sandy

I’ve been walking by these trees for more than a year and 99% of the time my fingers itch to grab up my camera, always buried in my bag,  and capture them.  These are now the only scars of hurricane Sandy in my area.  I wonder if I’m the only one whose Sandy memories can be tripped by this tangled part of our forest. 

I was hoping that I could find a garland in the midst of this tangle and yes, I think I see branch garlands. Can you?

And just for fun I played with one of the many Photo apps I’ve downloaded and never use.  For these pics I used FX Photo Studio Pro.

What fun!

  1. Yes I see garland. Did the photo app enhance the color to make it more orange? I have trees that I pass that still bare the broken scars of an ice storm from six years ago. Memories of ice looking like shattered glass always come to mind.

  2. :):) Yes there were lots to choose from… That’s called Hippie. I always wanted to stop and when I mentioned it to Tuvia he took everything out of my hands and left me to play. Good guy and then I had what I needed for today’s photo challenge.
