Description: In late 2019 early 2020 fires came frighteningly close to our home. Much bushland around us was devastated. This may seem like an odd choice for the Mystical Trees yet to me it actually says wonderful things about the almost magical attributes of many of our native trees. This banksia cone, probably from B. robur, has fallen in the flames, burnt from its branch. In response to the fire its 'beaks' have opened throwing out its papery seeds that will germinate in the ash-rich sandy bush soil as soon as the rains come. New life emerging from a blackened landscape. Shot with Canon EOS 5d MkIV 24-70mm lens at ISO 500, 70mm, f3.5, 1/1250
