Fred Williams, 'Upwey Landscape II' (1965)
Throughout this past year I have heard absolute horror stories of the bushfires that scare me so much I cannot repeat them. To have lived through it... is completely unimaginable.
The skeletons of so many trees remain, haunting the hills. Yet slowly, life is returning there.
Those that survived Black Saturday, the home owners, land owners, business owners, family, friends, neighbours are incredibly brave and strong.
Thank you to the CFA volunteers that fought so hard and saved so many. We are forever in your debt.
We will never forget.
