Not really a landscape, but it doesn't fit any category, but it is rural.

We had our third big windstorm in just under three weeks last night.  The winds are in excess of 60 mph, but they swirl and dip so that they knock down trees in one place, but others are spared.

We had a old Costco carport that we had used as a shelter from bad weather for our horse.  Inside, I had 4 X 4 posts embedded in concrete and a heavy duty divider which strengthened it and it has withstood many of those 60 mph winds.

Last evening, it met its match as a large section of a pine tree snapped off, and hit it in perfect alignment right on the centerline.  The section of the tree was about 16 inches in diameter, and really flattened it.

Fortunately, our neighbors horses (we loan the field to a neighbor) were not in it or injured.

After three winds in a row, and more storms in the forecast. I'm going to knock down any pines that could possibly fall on our outbuildings.  The Ponderosa pines are very large and snap off like matchsticks, the black pines pull up their roots and go over, but only when its wet, and the fir trees seldom are a problem, so they get to stay.

These were taken with our G1X II.  Bright sun and dark shadows meant I had to adjust the image to boost shadows and dim highlights.



I had a little trouble snapping a photo, the horses are big hams, and want to be in the picture.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. Sorry you had a mess to clean up. At least nobody was hurt. The weather is doing wild things in various parts of the world.

Hi jwilburn.
Very nice series, what happened to the bridge, was the approach washed away by floods or something?
