Shadow Shot Sunday #40
This shadow shot was taken back in January.
We live in the foothills of Perth and unfortunately have had some very bad fires around in the more bushy areas.
We have a lake across the road from where we live and this lake is utilised by the water bombers that are fighting fires close by.
You can see the shadow of the helicopter just behind it as it comes down to fill up with water. This particular day we had 2 water bombers using the lake as you can see below with some more pics from that day.
Today, Sunday February 22nd has been declared a National Day of Mourning in respect to the Victoria BushFires that have absolutely devastated so many lives, destroyed communities and killed 1000's of animals and wildlife. The fires that these people were fighting here across the road from my home were tiny compared to the fires in Victoria so if you have a moment today please spend that time in reflection and prayer for those that have lost their lives and also remembering the amazing people who have put their own lives on the line fighting these horrendous fires.
