This is an old image I took in 2013 but the relevance of it today in Australia is striking. The horrendous and tragic fires have decimated towns, communities and wildlife Australia wide. People have died, people are missing and the fires continued unabated. The air outside is toxic with smoke and breathing normally, even inside, is hazardous. Hearts have broken and lives shattered. The feelings of anxiety and fear are massive. However, through it all communities and individuals are pulling together, helping in whatever way possible and even the impossible. The firefighters and volunteer firefighters?? Their tireless efforts and their compassion will never be forgotten by Australians. Never.

It's a lovely picture, Sandra. The elegant simplicity of the subject is very appealing. in the current circumstances of wide spread wild fires the picture's symbolism and your comments are poignant indeed.
I hope you are well, despite the awful air quality.

A beautiful image and a beautiful sentiment. Even as an ex firefighter I can't begin to imagine the scale of the fires you are all enduring.Sad I hope you and your family and friends stay safe.

Our thoughts are with you all but nobody can feel it like those who live there.
Wish we could send some of our Scottish rain.
