Title: From the ashes ...
Post by: Colyn on September 07, 2007, 08:51:20 am
As landscape photographers we do have a tendency to shoot that what is perceived to be the norm of "beauty" ... lovely blue mountains, green grass, sparkling water streams and colorful flowers.

I am from a harsh continent ... Africa was shaped by fire and natural cataclysms. The devastation from a wildfire strikes deep into our hearts but the truth is that there are lots of plants that will not grow if they have not been burned.

The fantastic world of texture is best exposed in the aftermath of a fire.

The following shots is my view of a field after fire and there is a certain beauty hidden in the colours and textures that one only learns to love if you are willing to look deeper.

Can you post the stunnings pics you will post in the future without the white information page?

I like beautiful pics but the white seem to make the pic look smaller. ;)

I couldn't agree more, Colyn :). Nice shots you got there - where in the bosveld were those taken?

You probably saw in my earlier post that the same sort of thing caught my eye in the Kruger:

What interested me most was that, besides the scroched earth, it almost looks like autumn!

Post more of your pics  8)

Sorry ... my images are prepared to conform to the requirements of the photo forum where I participate and it is a drag to maintain multiple instances of the same shot.

I am talking to the admin here to allow 800 wide images and if it can be done then the shots will look better ;)

@ Growweblaar ... these shots were taken about 200 meters outside my yard. I live on a small farm outside Nelspruit.
