Full Circle

There is muted beauty in areas struck by forest fires. 

I would photograph topless, leafless trees with blackened branches and broken stems as much as I would  grand leafy trees that beckon: "sit by me."

In their jarring appearance, the fire victims speak of our amazing eco-system and how out of devastation, birds, bees, the wind, rain -- all miraculously make new growth possible.

Patiently awaiting deliverance from its charred and maimed state,  trees still reach for the sky and life continues its wonderful circle of death and renewal.

  1. Few places are as calm and stiking as a forest, such as the one you pictured, in deep snow. Nice blog, Ariel Murphy.
