Life returning to the fire affected areas of the Yarra Valley after the awful events of February 7 2009.
Marysville, August 23 2009
I was amazed at how badly damaged the tree ferns were, but still, most were showing signs of regrowth. Truly remarkable. I decided this would suit a monochrome approach – as the unmistakeable delicate fern regrowth and the contrasting charred form of the burnt stems and trunk – form striking graphic elements. The stormy sky is also more imposing in monochrome and a reference to the rain that has been falling during winter, allowing for this amazing regrowth.
