Right now might not be the best time to share something as stark and concerning as a scene affected by the byproduct of bushfires, but I do like this image.
It’s not exactly pleasant, but I think it has a sense of beauty that mostly comes forward through the light levels and colours. There’s a seldom visible softness that they add to the image. At the same time, it’s a reminder of just how widespread the recent fires were, as well as how widespread they could be in the future.
I think I’ve said this before, but being in a major city was quite a lucky thing, but a lot of people and wildlife lost their homes and habitats. A lot of people still are waiting on fund relief (I’m not going to get the reasoning beyond saying I believe some of the explanations as to why funds are still held up, but only some) which is quite unfortunate. There are avenues of donation which I recommend checking out if you can, but do research before you donate.
This is my submission into the one hundred-and-fifth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
The theme for this one is “Spring“.
The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:
Week 1 – Patti
Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya
Week 3 – Amy
Week 4 – Tina
This one is hosted by Tina. Next week’s host is Patti.
I recommend checking out how people are interpreting the challenges. I also recommend joining in. It’s a growing, fun community.
I hope you enjoy.
