Warm Field

Right now might not be the best time to share something as stark and concerning as a scene affected by the byproduct of bushfires, but I do like this image.

It’s not exactly pleasant, but I think it has a sense of beauty that mostly comes forward through the light levels and colours. There’s a seldom visible softness that they add to the image. At the same time, it’s a reminder of just how widespread the recent fires were, as well as how widespread they could be in the future.

I think I’ve said this before, but being in a major city was quite a lucky thing, but a lot of people and wildlife lost their homes and habitats. A lot of people still are waiting on fund relief (I’m not going to get the reasoning beyond saying I believe some of the explanations as to why funds are still held up, but only some) which is quite unfortunate. There are avenues of donation which I recommend checking out if you can, but do research before you donate.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-fifth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “Spring“.

Similar to the image I submitted for last week’s challenge, but taken in spring. This one doesn’t feel as dry, but it’s easy to see how this photo is connected to the previous one.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This one is hosted by Tina. Next week’s host is Patti.

I recommend checking out how people are interpreting the challenges. I also recommend joining in. It’s a growing, fun community.

I hope you enjoy.

    An interesting take on the challenge SH – even the horror of bushfires can be beautiful.

    • Cheers. To be honest, this is all I had for spring, but I think that’s an important thing. I’m hoping that people in city areas see more of this stuff as a reminder as it’s all too easy to forget about.

      The beauty of it is rather prominent when removed by time, but it’s a weird and uncomfortable beauty.
