Artist's Description

The bushfire season of January 2013 saw some catastrophic bushfires (wildfires). The Rural Fire Service Brigade of which I am a member was called out to the Wyangala Dam area north of Crookwell in New South Wales as part of a strike team sent to fight fires in the area.

The fire was fast moving. One of my fellow crew members and myself were directed to protect these sheep from the coming fire. For farmer working this land, his sheep were his most valuable asset. I could see his distress at the possibility of his sheep being injured. More sheep arrived from an adjoining paddock which was also in the path of the bushfire.

So, that was our task for several hours. Later in the day we were redeployed to protect farm property in the path of a wide and also fast moving fire front.
