Winters Bane

Winters Bane

 

Mid winter, and the grass has dried to dull brown. No rain will fall for the next few months and bushfires will start to burn their way through the eucalypt forests and long grasses with the strong westerly winds of August. This is the bane of Winter in my area of Australia. With cattle to eat the grass or by keeping it mowed short the effects of fire can be lessened but still fire is frightening and distructive.
