Australian woods are disappearing?

An excellent capture of a very bleak scene. I am not a fan of clear cutting woods.

Sad commentary on the process! Have never heard THAT song!

It is a very bleak scene; I did a "clearing the land" shot early on in my project and I'm struck by how much more successful something like this is in b&w.

It doesn't always happen here, but in some places they replant. Will that happen here or is this the sad end of a beautiful and forested area? Bleakly awesome shot.

This is desolate looking. Peter, I love your passion for photography. Every time I read your descriptions I feel as if I'm reading Greek!

Love the bleakness and the whole look of this!

That does look quite bleak. Some nice natural woodland required.

Quite sad, almost lifeless land.

This feels like California desert in the 1960s to me. Love it!
