      The tones are wonderful Rob. Was this the color because of the smoke or did you change it to monochrome? If you did, effective choice for a sad scene (as Frog said).

      • #418826

        Rob Eyers
        Participant

        It’s in colour Bobbie. I didn’t see any need to convert it as the colour added some dimension IMHO.

        I get that fires are “sad” events but they’re necessary in the forest from time to time for renewal. It’s a big topic and this maybe isn’t the forum to be discussing it.

        Holly, the impact is unbelievable. We will be going there in about ten days, and many roads and mountain passes are closed because of the danger. Just two days ago the Stelvio Pass was closed because an enormous amount of earth and rocks came down. The Gavia pass (next pass) was already closed.

    As you approach Greenough on the Coral Coast of Western Australia youโ€™ll notice the unusual sight of trees growing at 90-degree angles. Prevailing southerly winds have forced the trees to grow horizontally rather than upwards and the surreal sight has become something of an icon for the region.
