ROUND ROBINS - WOOD






---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Burnt wood.
Last year was a terribly fire in Greece which destroyed acres and acres of woods. I took this picture out of the bus near Olympia the birth place of the Olympic games.

It is very sad but made for a beautiful photo. Almost haunting.

I like what the reflection of the bus window does to that shot. Up above, a wedge of dark, damaged forest. Below, a glimpse of what it might have been before the fire.

Nice thing about forest fires, though: they set off a while new cycle of plant life and young trees.

Fires are so scary!

I played too :)

Good take on the subject. Fire, wood. It's strange to see blackened earth.

How sad. It makes for a good thoughtful subject.

Hi Gattina, I read about those fires in Greece, we have them too almost every year in Australia.

We had a very bad fire out on LI over 10 years, it's now starting to fill in with trees....it's too bad it takes so long to recover.

Great contribution! I live in Southern California where fires are an annual occurrence. It's always sad to see the land right after the devastation, but it's amazing to go back a couple of years later and see all the new growth popping up. I'd love to see a photo of the same area in a year or two -- you up for another trip?

What a site that must have been. The ground will be fertile for the new growth though.

I don't think of Greece as a place for a wildfire. How sad.
