These are what I went to see. Taken on the escarpment areas around Perth. Have not yet managed to do exact identifications…
…and many more not yet processed.
Bush fires have always happened in Australia, and many seeds have evolved to utilise the tremendous heat of the fires to trigger germination and renewal. And we also will come through the fire changed and renewed.
‘But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appears, for he is like a refiners fire…’
Just back from Australia. Great stay but extremely hot for a couple of kiwis. We arrived in Esperance at the same time as the bush fires, and my photos just can’t show the heat (40-41 degrees C), the wind, and the blackness of the sky as the fires raged. Total tragedy for many residents of the hard-hit areas.
traveling in the searing heat
of a dusty red land
smoke shrouds the horizon
darkening the sea
fires out of control
across the scrub
ravaging the wheat-fields
driven by furnace winds
we wonder if tomorrow
we’ll be able to leave
