Hailstorm





Fortunately, in this case the apple trees are protected by nets...

That could have been disasterous if the nets hadn't been inplace Karl, I quite like storms, but not so much the hail!

These are dramatic pictures.
I'm glad the apple trees were protected. Are the nets normally to keep away birds and bats?

Karl said...

@Dina: No, the nets are only to protect the apple trees from the hail.

Perhaps the nets are added to provide an opportunity for a creative photographer.

Terrific, Karl. I have never seen netting like this with apple trees. But, hail is quite rare around here.
