Dogrib Fire Abstracts

Last week when I headed out to the Ya Ha Tinda to see if I could get some sunset images I took a little detour to the north along Yara Ck to see what wildlife I could see.  all I saw were some wild horses far off.  However, I noticed the the burned trees from the Dogrib fire and the new growth under them.  I saw some potential for some abstract images.  What do you think of them?

I also like the environmental image they create, the new growth that occurs after fire.  Fires have always been a way for nature to regenerate.  The seeds of the lodgepole do not open unless exposed to the intense heat of a fire.  I think this particular fire came through the area over 10 years ago.  I remember the concern those of us living west of Sundre were starting to have if the fire continued out of control and burned eastward.

Further on along the Ya Ha Tinda road I saw the otherside of the Dogrib fire and shot these images.  They are a different look than the others.  More black and white and more stark.  But the new growth is there also.
