A bushfire Sunset







Beautiful pictures caused by the most destructive fires Australia has ever seen.

I took these pictures on Sunday the 8th from my back verandah, the night after these devastating fires began. This eerie sunset was caused by the Bunyip Ridge fire.
I wont go into it any more than this, Im sure these fires have made the news worldwide and everyone everywhere is quite aware of the devastating effect this has had on so many without me posting devastating details about it.
So many innocent people and animals living through a time that would seem like nothing short of Hell on earth.

Glad you're OK Cherrie! You must be very close -

I have a mental block everytime I try and express myself over the fires, as you say there's no need for details

Keep safe

Hi Cherrie,

I have heard about the fires on the news. It sounds unimaginable, I hope you are OK. From the pictures you must be pretty close. Wishing you the best.
