After the bushfires, Margaret River, south Western Australia.

40 homes and untold acres of bushland were destroyed in the devastating Margaret River bushfires after a “controlled burn” got out of control, late November 2011.

My favourite artist, Vincent Van Gogh once said “the way to know life is to love many things” and I hope those words are reflected in my photography.

Thanks for visiting and I hope some of my work resonates with you or inspires you as I am by other photographers’ amazing work here. Please feel free to explore and leave any comments.

    G’day Jill.
    An excellent dramatic treatment of this disaster, recently seen only on TV. The area where I live now was devastated by bushfire in 2001. Nine houses lost in the street, my friends saved their timber and cedar clad home by staying and fighting. In another major bushfire in the Northern suburbs of Sydney, many years ago, I spent a day as a volunteer on a fire truck and witnessed at first hand the awesome unstoppable power of a bushfire. Never forget seeing a house virtually explode in the intense heat – and we could do nothing to stop it. :)george

  • Many thanks George, sorry to hear of the bushfire in your area in 2001 and you witnessed it first hand as a volunteer, very brave!. I’ve never experienced the devastation but can well imagine the horror of it all! We arrived there a week after the fires and the smoke and charred remains were still very evident. ~ cheers
