Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Summer or Fire

Summer and Fire

Let’s Hit The Beach

Summer has been and gone here and I didn’t get out and about to take a lot of pictures. Of course to many Australians summer means the beach and we do have some good ones whether you live in the city or the country.

There’s No Smoke Without Fire

A less pleasant part of the Australian summer is the threat of bushfires. Luckily this summer Tasmania escaped without a major one. On these calm, autumn days Forestry Tasmania and many private landowners carry out fuel reduction burns to reduce the risk. This week they are burning near Geeveston and in the late afternoon you can see how the smoke from the fires gives the sky an orange tinge.

Born in England in 1957 my family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
