Scenes of devastating beauty at Bemboka bushfire

While the bushfire in the hills around Bemboka is undeniably devastating, there is also a haunting beauty.

Photos of the scene pepper social media, keeping the community up to date with the protracted situation while also causing viewers to shake their heads in awe.

There have been incredible photos from Bemboka locals Rachel Helmreich and Helmut Eder of the evolving scene, including stunning shots of the hills burning in the night.

Then on Wednesday, Eden photographer Toni Ward shared a gallery of heart-rending scenes at Kameruka with a farmer hand-feeding his sheep flock on bone dry grasslands while the fire burns in the distance.

“They're real, aren't they,” Ms Ward said.

“The scene felt powerful when I was taking the pics. I think the whole community can relate to them.”
