First photography run in at least two months: Burnt trees

Today I 'forced' myself to get out and take some pictures. I actually got out of bed around 9:00 a.m. but then, after coming into my office/study to check into some things, I managed to fall asleep in my chair. I didn't wake up until about 2:20 p.m.

But then I was determined to get in the car and go take some pictures, unlike other weekends where I have turned on the TV and started to enjoy a few, or more, glasses of red wine.

This first picture is of section of trees in the Bickley area that had recently been caught in a forest fire. I loved the mixture of the black burnt tree trunks, the dark brown/orange burnt leaves, and then the green of the black-boy grass trees at ground level and the those new leaves starting to grow on the trees.

This next picture is of a vineyard in the Bickley valley. I really liked how a stream of sun coming from the setting sun on the left was just kissing the tops of the vines.

Both these pictures are 1,900 px wide, so if you have a 1920 wide monitor be sure to see them enlarged—make you browser full screen (hitting F11 usually achieved this) then click on the picture.
