Coming Back.

Posted by mervfrench on February 14, 2010

I went over to Toodyay last night to find something to shoot and ended up in the bush that was burnt in the recent fires.  38 house’s were burnt and its a miracle that no lives were lost in a fire that was on a windy 46 deg day and 5000 hectares burnt out.

I shot quite a few different angles and views but this one caught my eye with the drops of ash around the base from the foliage above burning off. i was there a few weeks ago and the regrowth on these black boys is amazing , they were burnt bare in a fire only  6 weeks ago.

    Nice Merv, centre composition works well. Good to hear this place is recovering. New growth is always psychologically healthy for people tormented by fire.

    The bush has a great reputation of regenerating, great image Merv. Just remind me that I have some images of Marysville i need to get on too from last year.

  5. Hi Merv,

    Photos like these remind us of the terrible events that happened to people that might have slipped our minds. Great concept.

    Great simple powerful image Merv. It would look great on the wall in a entrance to a lavish home.
