Hi all, this is not a crafty post, I just wanted to share a little something with you all. Today is the 1 year anniversary of the Black Saturday bushfires, that devastated Victoria. While my home was never under immediate threat the fire destroyed homes and many lives were lost in near by towns. My fiancee was supposed to be playing cricket in one of these town on this day and I am just thankful that it was called off as the fire tore through these grounds and destroyed everything that day.
Below are some photos taken from our front door at around 4 in the afternoon. I have never shown these to anyone and have only looked at them once or twice myself. In this one the ash has completely blocked the sun, I have never seen anything like this before in real life, and only once or twice on tv, you can even see the ash falling from the sky, it looks a bit like snow.
