Artist's Description

A eucalypt forest in the Adelaide Hills.
This “red-processing” was prompted by what happened when I stopped to take these photographs. I had pulled the car off the main road onto a very quiet small dirt road to stop and take photographs. Within 15 minutes a police patrol had pulled up and was checking over my car. When I returned, I was asked questions about just what I was doing. The reason behind the vigilance – it is the start to the bush-fire season in southern Australia, and so many are started deliberately by “fire-bugs”. This meeting with the local constabulary brought home the memories of “Ash Wednesday” some 26 or so years ago, where SA and Vic were ravaged by massive fires and where I just managed to avoid being BBQed in my car, however others that day travelling ahead of me on that road weren’t so lucky.
