Blue Mountains


It's always sobering to see what devastation fire can have on the environment whether urban or rural. Perhaps some of my 'wiring' is a little different to the norm - many might agree - but the charred aftermath of trees do IMO have a beauty of their own. Don't misinterpret this, I DO NOT want to start a fire, it's merely a observation, even if slightly morbid.

This week I visited Hillbilly Cider HQ. The pictures below show a little of the aftermath of the fires at the end of October that swept the Blue Mountains and just how close the Hillbilly Cider command centre came to being raised to the ground.

From the air, the landscape must look reminiscent of a yin & yang symbol, with one side of a road lush green and the other burnt out. Which in a way is fitting.
