Burnt out Pines

Shooting a wedding up in the Hills after the recent bushfires I found myself driving through all the burnt out landscape, then turning a corner was blown away by these pine plantations with perfect¬†orderly¬†lines of black trunks contrasting against the blue sky and the carpet of pine needles. It was surreal and felt both sad and beautiful all at the same time… A couple of months later when I returned, lots of the trees were gone but I still found a wicked little spot to photograph my fam’ knowing they wouldn’t mind a little ash on their butts. Em grabbed a few shots of me with the boys too…
