Photo Hunt #23: Aftermath


Photo Hunt #23: Aftermath, originally uploaded by airam94564.

I dont know if this is the aftermath of a controlled burning or a malicious fire, but I saw this on the third day of our road trip. This is inside Yosemite NP.

I will be posting random snaps from the road trip series, jumping from day 1 to day 3.

  1. From the look of the ground, it would have happened long time ago. I'm glad those trees survived the fire. :)

  2. Wow, that is such an interesting view. I agree, I'm glad the aftermath included the trees surviving.

  3. I'm amazed at the sheer lunacy of people who start such fires deliberately to cause damage (as opposed to a managed burn). The trees survive about what about the wildlife?

  4. A very dramatic looking photo! Poor trees, and creatures living in the forest :(

  7. That's a good idea for the theme. Fire certainly leaves its aftermath in a forest.

  12. i was once the target of arsonists too maybe like 5 years back. only the intervention of a passing motorist saved our lives. apparently it was for no other reason than a random target. the people who maliciously set off fires are crazy.

  17. my family and i were in yosemite about five years ago. it was where i saw my first snow =] it was a thrill for someone living in the tropics =]

    i do hope this is one of those controlled fires started so that worse fires are avoided... else, i hope the perpetrators of the arson get caught asap =0

    ps- yes, it is i who is in the second photo in my PH entry hehe

  18. Seems to be the trees are having a change of bark. Hope soon, they'll be all tree and filled with fresh leaves :)

  19. The fire must have had happened recently.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Poor trees. I hope they can survive despite what happened. They are too precious.

  21. I love Yosemite! We also see large sections of burnt trees along the way to Yosemite, so we think it must be a deliberate practice by park rangers.

    ReplyDelete
  22. yosemite? those are very old trees probably

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow... in any case, am glad the trees look to have survived okay!

    ReplyDelete
  24. maybe it is a controlled burning of the underbrush

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh my gosh! I'm sorry to see this.

  27. Really like this photo - so crisp. Great choice for the "aftermath" theme this week.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, what could have been a very green photo turned grim and sad :(

    its a good thing the trees survived

    ReplyDelete
  29. wow! one of the best photo i've seen here. im doing two thumbs up right now for this photo.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Fine capture Maria. Trees seem having survived the fire!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Controlled fires are usually done on open fields, not among trees. This was part of a fire that was snuffed just in time, perhaps, and these trees survived the conflagration.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The poor trees! Would have been burned or just caught fire from lightning? Anyway, a photo that does send a sad story.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What a great photo for this weeks theme word! I suppose it was an act of nature maybe? My hunt is up please come and visit

  34. While it's heartbreaking seeing trees burn, they do say it helps the forests in the long run. Wish it didn't work that way. Great choice for this theme.

    Have a great weekend!

  35. Always depressing to see...safe travels!

    ReplyDelete

  37. A great set of pictures again, love it.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great pics down memory lane since I last took a look. Road trips can be very interesting, especially with a camera.

    ReplyDelete
  39. these trees are survivors. =)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love the way the trees are partially blackened, so that they will live to sprout again.
    Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  41. And yet they still stand brave and tall, as though nothing had scarred them!

    ReplyDelete
  42. very appropriate for the "aftermath" theme. i am a fan of dead-trees, dead-looking ones, or anything with branches-no-leaves-trees if you know what i mean. they just seem so melancholic to me or at least very moody. this would be brilliant in monochrome (just a thought).

  43. Could you still smell the smoke? I'm looking forward to the rest of your photos!

    Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. Have a great week!
