Before the fire - 2

Posted by
: Helen : (who is currently photographing in, Australia) on 10 May 2016 in Documentary & Street.

In this photograph you can see the fire in the trees along the road. The fire was lit and controlled by firemen from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).

This fire is a controlled burn that aims to reduce fuel on the forest floor to assist in the control of wildfires.

You may be interested to look at the planned burn schedule available for the public. DELWP - Planned burns for the next 10 days

(My thoughts are extended to all those who have recently suffered loss in the terrible fires in Alberta)

Many of you followed my recent series 'After the Fire' which focused on a mountainous area in Australia three years after a wildfire.

These photographs show the proactive side of Australian authorities preparing for the hot fire season in January to March.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/250 second F/8.0 ISO 100 70 mm

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!

What an idea to fight fire with fire !!!
I wonder if some of those bushes that start this fire have some fuel element in them !!!
This is an awesome image...and that stump in the foreground makes this scene sad....like predicting disaster !
