Default After the bushfire

G'day all

A couple of pics following our local bushfires ~ although much of SE Australia is still burning out of control, now 6-million hectares of forest & grazing land lost and we still have 2, maybe 3 months of summer heat still to go

1) timber fencing, lasts for years against rot and termites, but not fire

exif- Panny FZ-2500; 1/80s x F11; lens @ 100mm FF equiv; ISO-500;

2) immediately after the fire, new growth starts ~ life goes on

exif- Panny FZ-2500; 1/125s x F4,5; lens at 480mm FFequiv; ISO-160

As always, feedback welcome
Phil

G'day all

"YES" ... , things are starting to recover ... including some RAIN !!
Yesterday's TV showed a farmer dancing in his back paddock with the first decent rain in years, along with another bit of film showing a creek running for the first time in 5-years

Recovery-1


Recovery-2


as always, feedback welcome
Phil

Very nice Phil. The green sprout among the cinders makes for a striking contrast and conveys the feeling of rebirth and rejuvenation very well. In time, it will be lush again. Ash and cinders provide a lot of nutrients and the cleared brush will allow new growth to flourish. It's too bad that so many people were caught in its path. Like many things, it's a double edged sword. Again, great photos!
