Cutting, Jeff, 1945- Blood red noon, photography of the Brindabella & southern ACT fires of January 2003.

Summary

"Knoll 719, Stromlo Forest at 1540 hrs, 13:01:2003. There are distant smokes and hazy skies from bushfires and burning-off nearly every summer and autumn in Canberra, often lasting for weeks on end. Come January 2003, and the second successive summer of drought and smoke; memories of the previous Christmas fires invading the city would seem to have faded such that when news came of damaging fires on the South Coast and later of lightning fires in the Brindabella Ranges - there did not seem to be any reason for the community to be overly concerned at what could be a threat from wildfire nor reason to change holiday plans for the festive season"--Note from the photographer.
