The Hills Are Alight .... The Year In Photographs ... August 21, 2013
This was the view that greeted me from our verandah this morning.
It's dry season here, and we often see bushfires blazing in the ranges around this time of year.
August is not only the last month of our winter, but it is usually the time when the bush fire season is in full swing. We have been seeing lots of smoke around our rural suburb for around two weeks now, as the flames make their way slowly along the ranges in the distance.
Thankfully the flames are a long way off, and we're quite happy to just put up with the smoke.
