After months of devastating wildfires all across Australia which was killing their wildlife and plant life, amazing photos have just resurfaced showing bush already regrowing in the areas most destroyed. These pictures are giving hope to the people that are too far away to help the ongoing bushfire crisis.
Murray Lowe, a local photographer took these photos last January 6 in Kulnara. It is an area located in the New South Wales Central Coast region.
As he uploaded the photos on social media, he accompanied it with this post:
“Ventured out into the fire grounds today to capture some images of how the Aussie bush responds to fire, and the way it regenerates itself and comes back to life.
Even without any rain, life bursts through the burnt bark from the heart of the trees and the life cycle begins again.
It’s so heartening to see the bush coming back to life again.”
Since Lowe has shared these photos on Facebook, they have been shared by other online users over 40,000 times. He’s been shocked by the response, and had to write an update:
“I did not, in my wildest dreams, anticipate the overwhelming response to my photos that I’ve seen. It’s both humbling, and heart-warming.”
A Facebook user commented in reply:
“Thank you for sharing these pictures, it gives a glimmer of hope through these dark days.”
Another user commented:
“As the indigenous people of our country say… Australian country depends on fire to regenerate…. It just needs to be managed by people who understand it.”
Because of the wonderful feedback Lowe has received, his photos are now available to purchase in print. A portion of the proceeds that he will get from the sales will be donated to victims of the fires.
Other Australians have also started posting their own photos of their regions’ regrowth as the local government, fire fighters and volunteers continue to try and dissipate the blazes that are still ongoing in some areas of the country.
