It is a trick question as this was taken down near where the worst of the Tasmainian bushfires struck earlier this year. This is also where people had to get into the sea during the night in order to survive. I cannot imagine for a minute what is must have been like huddled under a pier with a massive bush fire providing the only light and noise. The fire burnt right to the water line and most of the people in the water lost everything they owned except the clothes they had on. So the colours are blacks and browns. It also demonstates how fast the fire roars through as all the trees still have leaves. This was taken just days after the area had been opened up again. By now they would be bare as a result of the damage (gums are evergreen), however come Spring most will shoot lots of lovely green. This tree may not still be there as the trunk was severely burnt it was probably bulldozed when they fixed the fence. As most of the farmers in this area have/had livestock, fencing companies from Victoria volunteered their workers and materials to put up fencing and were already hard at work when we drove through.
