Fire! Who's The Responsable!? What Have You Burnt!?

by Ricardo October. 04, 2009 4581 views

This is the view from my home back balcony. That is a hill where I from far to far give a walk to see some wildlife. And now, some idiot decided to put fire on it. It has not only destroyed part of the hill but has burnt a lot of new pine trees and eucalyptus that were starting to growing, it has killed many snakes, birds and other animals that were starting to find places to hibernate or burnt their nests, It has burn a lot of bugs that were laying their eggs to a new generation, it has burnt all the seeds from flowers and plants that were a whole life producing. If that was not enough, with this, it has caused a lot of work for the firemen, risking their lives to stop the fire.
What do these people gain on burning our lungs!?!? Is that funny destroy one thing in 1 day what delayed years to build?! These people make me sick. They should die when they try to do it.
It was in the middle of the forest, it could not be a natural fire.
Sad world.

Terrible situation, but at least you made the best of it with some great shots and some great editing. I saved the one of the fire truck as a favourite.
