Life After The Burn

Berowra Heights, New South Wales

Hiking back down the hill after watching the sun set on my first night in the Sydney area, Tash mentioned that there had been a fairly big fire some years ago in the area. Scary to think about all the dry brush land being ignited so close to a residential area, but luckily it was contained quickly.

Though no homes were lost or damaged, the brush and trees on the hill top weren’t so lucky. This tree had the base of its stump burned out, but has managed to come back to life and branch out from the destruction. I had to use a flash for some fill light on this one as it was quickly getting dark.
