Corella, photograph taken on a clear sunny Spring day in Hepburn Springs, Australia with my old Panasonic FZ. In the original photograph the sky was deep blue. I altered the background with texture layers and various manipulations in Photoshop CS3. This work is a reminder that it’s not just humans who suffer from carelessly lit fires. Here in Australia, hundreds of animals and birds are destroyed every summer by bush fires, most of them accidentally lit. A stray spark from a lawnmower or cigarette can result in yet another extinct native species. Please watch out this Summer, and save our native wildlive.
