Fire update.....


The bush fires south east of Northcliffe are 'contained but not yet under control'..according to the fire updates, as long as the containment lines hold the fires shouldn't run into rural land. The fires weren't started deliberately this time, they were caused by a series of lightning strikes! The air over Perth (and in my head) is even smokier this morning and it's expected to continue right up until the weekend. Despite the haze I'm going out on the scout today looking for a bit of fun haha! Hope you have a good day in your part of the world.....

  3. The pink glow is like an other world...perhaps like a former life on Mars? So pleased the fires were not caused by arson.

  4. Bush fires seems to be a recurring problem every year in Australia, it must be really difficult during these months ! Take care !

  10. I really like the way you framed that shot - it is lovely!

    We had a fire last summer in a swampy area well south of us. It burned for months because it was burning the bog, and the smoke was sometimes seen and smelled well over 200 miles away! It was started by a series of lightning strikes also, so I know what you are experiencing. Hope they are able to get it put out quickly - besides the obvious damage from the fires, the resulting smoke is such a health hazard for people with breathing issues! Thinking about you, Grace. Have a good day!

  11. Let's not have the birds start to fall out of the skies. This sort of thing can happen in the American West but never here. Too wet. We have tornadoes and the odd earthquake instead.

  12. It's so sad that something as destructive as a bushfire can make such a lovely photo!! I guess we take our beauty where we can find it.

  13. There have been many times here when the valley we live in fills with smoke from forest fires up north so I know how this looks and smells. Hope you had a good scouting trip and didn't have to breathe too much smoke.

  19. your picture today is really fabulous!
    The fact that the fires did not start deliberately is a "good" news. I HATE when someone light fires.

  26. Such scary stuff. I remember the smell of smoke and the twilight at daytime here from a couple years back. I woke in the middle of the night on one of those days to a bright orange moon out the bedroom window.

  32. When I initially commented I appear to have clicked on
    the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now
    on every time a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment.

    There has to be an easy method you are able to remove
    me from that service? Cheers!
