We travelled 12 kilometers along a bumpy bush track to Brunson’s Bridge near Walhalla (Victoria, Australia).
As my once white car reached the end of the road a beautiful vista of a camp site, old wooden bridge and river appeared.
At the deserted campsite I took this photo of these ashes that should have been extinguished.
The campers who left these ashes were irresponsible when you consider the devasating bushfires that roared across the area in February of this year.
We didn’t have anything with us to put the ashes out properply so when we got back to Walhalla, Sue informed the store keeper who sent someone out to extinguish the ashes.
Lucky it was a mild sunny day with no wind otherwise it may have caused a major problem.
Note: I did have a photo of the ashes but I’ve taken it down because it’s been used elsewhere, twice, without my authorisation.
Pearl Brewington says
Mr. Bennett: My name is Pearl Brewington and I am writing my first fiction/non-fiction book. I needed some pictures to illustrate some of my words. Your photos are vividly taken and especially the Duck illustrating an ending of someone’s life. May I have your permission to use your “Ashes to Ashes” and “Warbie Duck” pictures please?
I thank you for a reply and hopefully your pictures. Thank you.
I thin the problem has been with the others using your pictures is because they are listed under “free pictures.” Nevertheless it is courtesy to ask of the photographer for permission. Thank you again and I await for a reply back.
