in time, this place will recover, i expect? perhaps experts made an estimate of the megatons of co2 emitted, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: I think it will Ayush, ( you would hope ) It certainly must have caused a lot of emissions .
You did a great job of handling the light and shadows - and the B&W is perfect for this!
Ayush's question intrigued me - but I couldn't find any research on the CO2 emissions. It would likely be hefty given the fire burned for more than three weeks, scorching more than 15,000 acres.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Elizabeth, it must have done some harm for sure.

Oh dear, hopefully it'll all grow back
Frank L Croston.: Eventually Chris.
Tristesse et désolation !
Frank L Croston.: After what it was like, yes Claudine, very sad.
It would be interesting to see this same place in 12 months time Frank
Frank L Croston.: This is a few years after Bill, a slow recovery, during which residents below have the risk of flooding due to it. It was man made...

It is heartbreaking to see scenes like this, especially now we are all so aware of the importance of trees. However, I am always amazed at how quickly nature bounces back.
Frank L Croston.: Yes indeed Andrew, its a natural occurrence, this one wasn't though.

In black for mourning, Frank
Frank L Croston.: Indeed Elisabeth, this was an awful fire, the consequences still being felt. As far as I know the culprits haven't been caught.

a sad look - but I like the curves of the hills.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Philine.
OUCH. That really hurts, Frank. Out of curiosity, where was this?
Frank L Croston.: It was the Schultz fire to the north of Flagstaff,Ginnie, it happened about four years ago.

Hopefully the devastation can be replaced with new growth soon.
Frank L Croston.: It will take some years Anne...The fire was four years ago.
Nature's pruning we could say. Next spring this area will be alive with mushroom pickers. Morels grow for two years (best the first) after fire. Pickers get a lot of money for the delicious morsels.

Nicely done photo.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Mary, this fire was four years ago, Elizabeth tells me its good for mushrooms.

What an awful sight, Frank. A fabulous picture. It is so double. I hope that Nature will recover overtime..... The choice of B&W is wonderful.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Astrid, it will eventually I hope.
C'est désolant de voir un tel paysage.
Frank L Croston.: It certainly is Martine.
The only benefit of the fire here is the way the shapes and contours of the hillside are shown, in due course the trees will no doubt regrow but it will take a long time.
Frank L Croston.: Quite right Brian, a man made fire too...

A sad sight; it will be years before this area regains its growth.
Frank L Croston.: Correct Alan, it will be some time.
Tragic, I'm a great tree fan. Someone will have a hell of a task replanting this lot if that comes on the agenda
Frank L Croston.: A real shame Martin, man made destruction too.
It'll be amazing how quickly it recovers!
Frank L Croston.: Well this is four years later Tom...
Great pic, but depressing...
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Larry, indeed.
A bizarre and striking image, Frank smile
Frank L Croston.: I wish I wasn't able to take it Martin, thanks though.

Aw....that is so sad. Documents the should send it into the newspaper! Those should be verdant hills.
Frank L Croston.: Maybe one day in the future Bonnie, we hope.

Start, like a cemetery!
Frank L Croston.: Pretty much what it is Ray....
