Warrumbungle National Park

I love the depth and the layers you created in this amazing composition Laine. ~

It's is beautiful - like a Constable painting.
Hopefully, things are slowly returning to something resembling normal.

Excellent framing, Laine. I like seeing the shapes in the mountain range on the horizon. Seems like it is always too dry or too wet nowadays. V

Terrible shame, however it will regrow.
The loss of property and livestock, that's another matter, my heart goes out to the affected people who may have spent years building their community.

It still looks beautiful. Love the light and the clarity. V.

What a lovely scene: hopefully it's slowly rejuvenating itself after the devastation of the fire.

This is a wonderfully composed scene with beautiful lighting! V It is difficult to see where the burn took place.

I remember that terrible fire... we've been to that Observatory, and it was amazing
that the people who were
evacuated could watch on a computer screen (elsewhere) as the fire raged around the building! Lovely shot Laine, the lighting is wonderful. v
