Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

New shoots on a burnt tree near Ballandean, Queensland

The Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal had me stumped. I was driving home today from a visit to a friend in New South Wales wracking my brain for ideas on the subject. I had more or less decided that I might have to renege on my ‘post a photo once a week’ promise when I came round a bend in the road and dead ahead stood a burnt out patch of trees – black with brilliant green new shoots everywhere. It was just before Ballandean on the New England Highway.

‘Renewal!’   I yelled to nobody in particular, did a U-ie and went back to get some photos.  I’ve included a few more below. Hope you like ’em! (Haven’t tried to master the new format yet – maybe next time)

    Excellent shots… Some of the trees even look like they are exercising. 😉

    Love it! I was in Melbourne when the awful fires were happening. I remember people rescuing koalas with burnt paws. So sad. We had similar fires in San Diego in 2007, evacuated, many lost their homes. So this renewal? Wonderful.
    PS- Now I think I have it straight. You are from Brisbane but were visiting the UK.
    Lovely blog!
