After The Fires by Chris Paddick

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

Taken on top of Cape Naturaliste after the fires that swept through 2 summers ago… Nothing escaped on the top of these hills >>> even the limestone rocks were burnt… This image is captured around 2 weeks after the fires had passed with the new green plants already beginning to shoot…
On the horizon the indian ocean can be seen here through the burnt scrub… On the ocean side of this hill there are many limestone caves… Cheers…
This is a HDR image -3 x exposure merged and tone mapped in Photomatix…

    guessing you used a filter for the golden sky? love this – wonder what it’d look like with the colored sky? fantastic stark scene…. so sad. but Nature mends what it touches except for what Man touches….. thanks for sharing. hoping you weren’t affected by the fires

    Yeah I used the cokin tobacco soft grad here as i wanted it to depict a glowing sky… I was not affected by these fires but couldn’t help wonder about the small mammals etc that were… Thanks for all your coments too i appreciate any feedback… cheers + hi Lori
