    Your story 'cruel summer' is incredible. Such a tragedy unfolding so quickly; you certainly would have no idea of the impending disaster when looking at this photo!! Well done.

    It was a day Australia was hell on earth, this image depicts that! Great photo mate and story. Our summer still continues though and where I live there are still total fire ban days and what we call an "Indian Summer", hopefully the heat and 10 year drought will end soon......Your Aussie Mate........Chris
