Day Eighty Two - Cut and Burn

Driving back to the interior on the road through the forest we passed through a small area which was being burnt back. At first I thought it was the Irokwama Ranger Station that was on fire, but it turned out to be a patch of forest next to it. I'm not sure if they are extending, or just chasing back a bit of forest which was encroaching, but it's incredible how little soil is there under those trees. This lush forest is so close to being a barren desert.

  1. love the colours in this one. The white / grey in the distance and the browns right round the bottom and up the lower sides of the frame. These rusty colours make the forest look like a rusting scrap heap of metal rods and wires. stunning Win
