Many years ago I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography than painting – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.
I followed your dreadful fires and much of the fire damage and it was heartbreaking, really great to see this wonderfull sight Bette. a beautiful image and a fav!! x
Yes, as I first drove up the Black Spur through this forest I was relieved to see that at least here, the forest would recover soon – maybe within my lifetime. But a lot has gone and will not be back for a very long time.Glad you like this.

Thank you, supergold. I appreciate your comments.
green, black, silver — a wonderful palette and a great semi-abstract effect with all the verticals broken by the graceful fronds — gotta be a fav Bette!
That’s some review! Thank you and thanks for the fave.
Beautiful work Bette – love the vibrant colour and depth, well done!
