Burnt

By saxaphonium  
I spent yesterday evening exploring some 'Travel Not Advised' roads close to home. Most of them were logging roads made to take out lumber after the Sandilands Provincial Forest had a large forest fire last summer. This is one of the areas that was burnt, and the trees have a very skeletal appearance.
However, despite the bleak landscape, signs of rejuvination are everywhere - Prairie Crocuses (that's Pasqueflower to you Americans) are popping up left, right, and center, and lots of native clump grass is greening up the charred forest. Also, it's created a perfect habitat for the uncommon Black-Backed Woodpecker.

Not much to critique but I think there ought to be a bit more ground below the tree trunks — maybe about half the height of the trees on the right?

I like the ambiguity about whether we're looking at a hazy sunset or smoke.
