Black Sunday night.
Bush fire in the hills above Kelmscott, Perth, Western Australia. This was as close as we could get as the area was closed off by police. Flashing lights could be seen up near the fire as fire fighters tried to get the fire under controll. Sirens and the fire roaring with the explosions of gum trees going off made it all look like a war zone. 8-20pm Sunday 6-2-2011
