So as promised (albeit slightly delayed) here is this weeks Photo Friday update:
Fire On The Mount
Fire whether intentional or not forms a big part of farming life. From the stories we have seen in the past few weeks with entire grazing properties losing valuable grazing pastures we have seen that fire can have a detrimental effect on productivity and the livelihoods of farmers. This in many aspects is true but there is also the beneficial points as it can work through controlled burning to reduce fuel loads and promote the growth of native and introduce pasture species.
Below are some photos of a controlled burning exercise that I shot during the evening. This process was being undertaken by a local landowner to reduce fuel loads on his property. Shot at night as I was driving past these fires provided for some spectacular images to be captured. Here is just a small sample of these images:
