Katrinas Ghost
10 February 2007 Coleen Perilloux Landry

Katrina's Ghost

Waveland, Mississippi

Just across the street from the Gulf of Mexico, this tree felt the full wrath of the 30 foot tidal surge that Hurricane Katrina brought. The fabric on the tree was left there by the winds of Katrina, probably someone's curtains or bedspread.
The surge wiped out most of the town and killed many people.

I remember those towns so well having lived in Baton Rouge. I remember the gulf coast after Camille. Great shot.

Ahh the witch tree. I knew this would be your pad today. The temperature was as chilly as this tree looks.
Nice composition Coleen

Coleen,--fantastic but it looks like a crucifix! Fitting for the Gulf Coast. Sacrificed
by the Government.
