Bundanoon

We took a train trip to Bundanoon today to have lunch at the cafe my niece and her husband own. My two sisters had lunch with us which was nice.

Bundanoon is on high alert to be evacuated due to a major bushfire that is due to hit in two or three days. The people who live in the village have been told that they must leave as their lives will be at risk if they don't. You can see from this image that there is a lot of smoke in the sky.

(I took this photo at the designated crossing for the train station)

My health and safety instincts are kicking in just looking at this shot. So sad to hear all the news about the fires...

Terrific leading line and vanishing point

@peadar you would not have liked the family who let their two young children walk up and down the tracks as we waited for the train home. It took all my will not to say something to them.

@nicolecampbell it horrified me to read kids were walking on the tracks....freight trains come through regularly....I would not have been able to stay quiet

It's a very striking photo- knowing that not only is a train going to come down that track but a fire is coming that way too. Must be so difficult to live in that warning stage. good shot!

@olivetreeann - thank you Ann. This track saw a 'gin' of water delivered to Bunadanoon this morning, that is the equivalent of 33 fire trucks. Let us hope it is enough water as the fire has jumped the river and heading directly towards this area.
