I had deliberated over uploading this photograph for sometime..I don’t expect it to ‘go well’ – But just like to add it to the series for some balance.
Five weeks after the devastating Gippsland bushfires passed through this particular area (still burning on a large scale to the north and east) A surface trough brought some welcome rain and thunderstorms on the ranges. It was not too long after this that the sheer brilliance of the Australian ‘bush’ came to life…Here in this rainforest gully I had been unsure to it’s ability to recovery. Perhaps the fire’s intensity at this point was not as ‘hot’ as other areas.What ever the reasoning my repeat visits to this gully over the ensuing months saw the most wonderful transition.
Canon EOS A2, Fuji Velvia 50.
