    Ellicer and 14 other iReporters contributed to Open Story: Typhoon Haiyan's impact

    Magnificent view from Tacloban


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Ellicer, a 26-year-old jail officer and nurse, went with her colleagues to Tacloban, Philippines on a medical mission to conduct a stress debriefing on the inmates and give relief to fellow jail officers who were victims of Typhoon Haiyan.
    She was about to step into an ambulance when she saw this stunning view of McArthur's Park in Tacloban. "It was not my intention to look for unique scenery beyond the devastated place in Tacloban, but this area -- where the trees have no leaves at all, sunset behind them -- caught my attention," she says. "I thought of it as a picture of Filipinos where, amidst the crisis, can stand again and start a new life."
    - PM91, CNN iReport producer

    I was about to get into our ambulance when I saw this view. I never hesitate to get my phone and took a picture of this view.
