Burning off

Fire in the paddock

Burning off

We are enjoying some lovely Autumn days here. Cool nights and warm days. The farmers are preparing paddocks for crops and burning off the dry grasses before the wet weather returns. This is in the paddock across the road from us. It is great to watch. The flames crackle and dance around as the grass all burns away.

The heat rises leaving a wavy horizon.

Smokey farmer

The vigilant farmer watches over the burn making sure it all goes to plan.

And the smoke floats across the paddocks and joins up with the clouds in the sky.
