Artist's Description

This shot was taken after the devastation of the Black Saturday bushfires that blazed across certain areas of Victoria, Australia during 2009.

As you could imagine I had mixed emotions walking my way through the fire damaged bushland & woods. It was surreal, full of sorrow, but in areas there was also hope of healing (see Mending the Wounds). 173 people died in the bushfires & I felt the trees reflected a sense of loss. Taken on a winters day the weather was freezing, there was mist, & there was this eerie silence that combined to create a haunting atmosphere.

Beyond the vanishing point of the woodland trail I was greeted with the harrowing sight of disaster-destruction-desolation
