Burnt Out by peterdegraaff

Burnt Out

...astronomical observatory at Mt Stromlo destroyed by bushfires. Bridabellas visible in distance.

Thank you to Megan @lbmcshutter who took me up to Mt Stromlo today during our Canberra photo shoot with TJ. It was an icy cold wind but a magnificent 360 view.
it almost looks warm - must have been during the 30 seconds of sunshine today
