Beauty after bushfires in the Australian bush

With the recent heat and bush fires raging across Australia, I wanted to share these photos of  my parents backyard in the Royal National Park while we were visiting in November 2012.

It was fascinating for my children to make the discoveries that I grew up with living near the Australian bush. They make completely different discoveries on their Island home.

at first I was shocked to see it so sparse and blackened, but then saw the amazing beauty in the blacks and oranges with a touch of new green.

We are grateful for the burning off that the Grays point bush fire brigade completed months ago as now there is less chance of a bushfire catching and damaging the surrounding houses.
