After the Fire
I took this picture on Glade Park in the Fall of 2003.
These little purple flowers covered the ground in an area that had been devastated by a wildfire the year before. I took lots of pictures, but couldn’t capture the starkness of the landscape. What captured my imagination most was how soft the lavender carpet was underneath those charred trunks and limbs.
This was the best picture I got; just a wallpaper shot of a clump of purple flowers.
