Australia’s hope for life

As new green growth is seen emerging out of the burnt ashes, Australia’s hope for life is rejuvenated. As the country’s forests are being ravaged by the bushfires, finding any sign of life is difficult. These beautiful pink and green shoots among the charred remains give us new hope.

Mary Voorwinde and another photographer clicked these pictures in Kulnura, near New South Wales Central Coast. These ‘eerie but beautiful’ sprouts are rejuvenating Australia’s hope for life.

On her page ‘Photography by Mary’, she wrote, ‘With all that is lost in nature, there is hope of life again.’ This caption of her post is emotional for everyone who is coping with the bushfires.

She said, ‘After a quick trip out to Kulnura today and talking to some of the locals Lee and Mick, who faced the fierce fires before Christmas, it was a humbling experience to visit their property and hear their stories.’

‘They spoke of the brave fire fighters and emergency service personnel who helped them through some of the most scariest times of their lives.’

‘Stories of sounds so loud it was deafening, the intensity of heat and the sheer power and speed of the fire just incomprehensible, lucky for them their house was saved, but only just’.

She also said that ‘It was eerie being there and then in amongst all this ash and black burnt trunks was all this rejuvenation. It gives you hope’.

She had been watching the ‘doom and gloom’ news all over the media. But desperately wanted a story of happiness and hope which she got in these newly grown shoots.

Almost 46,000 hectares of the area outside Kulnara has been burnt by the ‘Three Miles’ fire. A few pictures of new growth on the north coast of NSW have also been shared by the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. The pictures are comforting and are strengthening Australia’s hope for life.
