Post Fire

A few weeks ago the South Western part of the Overberg was troubled by run away fires. Tens of thousands hectares were affected but the fire fighters managed to save all houses and agricultural land. They (mainly volunteers) did a great job.

Both main pictures were shot last week in the Elgin Valley. The gallery pictures were made at one of the fires near Stanford.

  1. Forest fires like what you have here are frightening to me, leaving a scene of destruction and scars (rebirth of the land is always a beautiful thing after such an episode). Your dramatic images show the incredible work that firefighters engage in.
