Pictures from Hades

Today as I mentioned earlier was a day from Hades. Temps to 46.4 in Melbourne and up to 47.8 just outside of Melbourne. Soon after the fires started to take hold. These are pictures taken from my house of the fires around my town. They speak for themselves.

Thanks for sharing these Chuckie - sorry about the orchids. What time of the day are these shots from? Is the light smoked out, or is it nightfall?

Hello Lynsey,

The first photo is about 7:30 at night and the other three progressively over the next hour. It was really the first time I had really tried to photograph at night so many of the photos I took that night were not all that good. This was the best of the lot. Actually, there are one or two others that were pretty good but I didn't have much time to upload them before we had to go.
