From Floods to Fires

Bushfire at Maroota
This is a piece I am working on inspired by the fires around Maroota and Glenorie (New South Wales) some years ago. I will never forget riding through the devastation a few weeks later and experiencing, for the first time, the baldness of a charred landscape that stretched to the Blue Mountains some 50 kms (about 35 miles) away to the west of where the Wisemans Ferry Road intersect with the Old Northern Road at Maroota.
